The Sphinx of Giza is the biggest structure of ancient times that still captivates the minds of historians. Created around 5,000 BC (or even earlier than that!) Sphinx is as puzzling as the pyramids around it. Together with the famous Pyramids of Giza and Nile, Sphinx represents the position of Leo constellation with Milky Way and Orion as they would have been observed during the Age of Leo. This alone puts the origin of Sphinx to question. Did the Egyptians really build it or some other more advanced civilization created the structure? Recent research shows there are chambers hidden beneath Sphinx’s paws!
The Amber Room
The mind-blowing Amber Room was once considered the eighth wonder of the world and was a symbol of peace between Prussia and Russia. After Frederick William I gifted it to Peter the Great, Amber Room was transferred to the Winter House in St. Petersburg, and then moved to the Catherine Palace. In 1941, the Amber Room was taken by the German army and shipped to the Konigsberg Castle, where it supposedly remained until the bombings in 1944. No one actually knows whether the Amber Room was evacuated or destroyed in the fire!
