Tsars and Knights
Tsars and Knights is the next exhibition coming to the Hermitage Amsterdam. An unexpected combination and a striking phenomenon. The Romanovs had a fascination with knights and the 19th century saw a renewed interest in the Middle Ages. It culminated in a full-blown ‘Gothic revival’, in which knightly motifs and faux historical styles became the trend. The Tsars collected display weapons and suits of armour. The collections expanded considerably over time and are now world-famous. See some of the best pieces of the collections at the Hermitage. for details and tickets, see the Tsars and Knights official page. For more great events in Amsterdam, see our handy listings.
