The first documents date back to 1398. The official date of the town’s foundation is 1654. Up until 1947, Yantarnyi was called Palmnicken. The town of Yantarnyi is situated on the shore of the Baltic Sea, in the north-west of the Kaliningrad region, 50 km off the city of Kaliningrad. The town became the centre of amber mining and processing, 90 % of amber production being processed there.
As for the cache: In view of the fact that there are only two caches available here in the Kaliningrad region, we decided to launch other two. This is the first one. Dear cache hunters, change the logbook if it gets full. Thanking you in advance, on behalf of the team ottik5+Alice5.
