Peter the Great: an inspired Tsar exhibitionExhibitions / Amsterdam
09 March 2013 - 13 September 2013, 9am - 5pm
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!
