According to the Daily Mail, the complex was the base for Adolf Hitler’s German Army Supreme Command.

It was also located a few kilometres away from the Wolf's Lair bunker.

Experts already knew that a railway line ran from Mamerki to the Wolf's Lair but existing documents about the line were stored inside the bunker itself.

Bartlomiej Plebańczyk from the Mamerki museum, posted to social media: “This is a huge surprise as we did not know that there was a railroad inside the complex.

“Could it be the Gold Train with the Amber Room? We'll find out soon enough…

“We don't know why this track was even made here.

The bunker was originally built for the Russian tsar Peter the Great in the 1700s, it was packed with amber, gold and other precious jewels until it was looted by Natzi in 1941.

Then in January 1945, it vanished following a series of tirades on the city. Reports claimed it had been destroyed, but some believe it had been hidden away.
