German amateur archaeologists continue to search for the legendary Amber Room (as well as many others). The attraction was once stolen by the Nazis and taken to Germany. Archaeologists believe that it can be found somewhere in the caves near Dresden. Amateurs are sure that during the war the Nazis who stole the room built bunkers under the Hartenstein hills. It is there that the treasure is kept, which was previously located in Konigsberg (now Kaliningrad), and even earlier was taken out by soldiers from the occupied territories near St. Petersburg. In the vicinity of these caves there is a railway station, where a train from Königsberg was seen in 1945.
Armed with search equipment, the experts went in search of the caves. The study yielded results - enthusiasts were lucky enough to find a large group of voids in the proposed location. All this suggests that there really are military shelters, however, this does not at all guarantee that the treasure was hidden there. Archaeologists claim that a certain "trusted source" informed them about the location of the treasure.
It is curious that this is not the first case with the search for treasures left over from Nazi Germany. Earlier, an amateur found a radioactive part, which, in his opinion, is a fragment of a Nazi atomic bomb. The man hopes to find a forgotten secret center for the development of weapons of the Second World War, but for now, he faces criminal liability for "black archeology" and storage of radioactive metals.

Probably, the time of the old school actors with their perfectionism has gone. After all, before any actor tried to play immediately "excellently", and the details of his personal life tried to keep in the strictest confidence. Remember at least the talented Faina Ranevskaya and her fear of “spitting into eternity”. And now washing dirty laundry in public has become commonplace. Young, and not so, stars of cinema and show business come to popular TV shows and agree to reveal family secrets for a fee. If you are not yet "in the know" with

What secrets of the ancient Greeks were revealed to scientists by the unusual island-pyramid of Daskalio
The Greek islands such as Crete and Santorini are famous for many beautiful things. There, stately white buildings line the slopes of the coastline, and donkeys can hardly make their way along paths that are inaccessible to cars. Tourists can take a break from sightseeing and contemplation of natural beauty in any of the delightful seaside taverns. The island of Daskalio is not particularly famous for all this. To the surprise of scientists, this is not an island with a hill at all, but a giant pyramid created during the very first pi
