Chromium Bookmarks Folder?

I'm trying to find out which folder Chromium Browser uses to save its Bookmarks. Does anyone know which folder it is?

I'm using Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3

About halfway down page for specifically Chromium under Linux...

It's /home/<your username>/.config/chromium/Default/

The Chromium profile usually is named Default, but sometimes not. If you cannot find bookmarks there, try
find ~/.config/chromium -type f -name Bookmarks
The file Bookmarks in Chromium profile is in JSON format. The link provided by Lucko666 above also explains how to export bookmarks in a HTML file. If, by chance, you want to work with the JSON file directly, this command will simplify its structure:
jq '..|objects|select(has(type))|select(.type=="url")|{,url:.url}' Bookmarks
