The Hermitage Amsterdam will feature a major exhibition, spanning seven months, on the unconventional and innovative Russian Tsar Peter the Great (1672-1725) with many paintings and artefacts from the collection of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.

Greatly responsible for modernising Russia, Peter the Great even used Amsterdam’s canal ring as inspiration for the foundation of St. Petersburg!

2013 not only marks an exciting 400 years of Amsterdam’s famous canal ring but also a special relationship between the Netherlands and Russia. The two countries have been major trading partners since the Dutch Golden Age.
