Did you know that Saint Petersburg was built with the help of the Dutch? Amsterdam and the Russian city have indeed always had close ties. The most recent evidence was the inauguration in Amsterdam in 2004 of a satellite of the Hermitage, the famous State Museum of Saint Petersburg. In a 17th-century building on the banks of the Amstel river, Amstelhof, the Hermitage Amsterdam, explores Russian history and its links to the Netherlands thanks to a rich collection. The temporary exhibition ‘1917, Romanov & Revolution. The End of a Dynasty' is one such event, which marks the 100th anniversary of the fall of the tsars through a collection of artworks highlighting the way in which Russian artists captured those history-changing times.
