Thanks for visiting the World of Amber!

This map shows an area where much of the Baltic amber comes from today, from Poland east through Russia. Amber finds on this map include Hel (tip of sand spit extending into Gdansk Bay, Poland); Gdansk, Poland; Baltiysk (Baltijsk/Pillau), Primorsk, Yantarnyi (Jantarnyz/Palmnicken), and Kaliningrad (Konnigsberg), all on the Sambia Peninsula (Samland); and along the sandbar and lagoon, Courish Lagoon (Kurskiy Zaliv/Kurisches Haff) or the area north of Zelenogradsk (Zielonogradsk). More Baltic amber is found just off this map to the north in Palanga, Lithuania.
