A fascinating insight into the sad end of the Romonov dinisty. Fabulous readinng and photographs of the lives and family. Whatever your thoughts on the Romonovs time in power, no one deserves to die in such a way, especially not children. A well worthwhile visit.

We visited the Romanov exhibit at the Hermitage in Amsterdam on 23 April. The queue was long, but it moved quickly. The audio guide was very useful. There is a nice mix of exhibits - some beautiful and some quite gruesome. Very interesting pieces mixing the romance of the Romanov dynasty and the subsequent revolution.

My father's parents, brothers and sisters were all born in Russia. They left in 1914, the year he was born. it was chilling to see the history of the Russian people and to know that my family lived through part of it. The clothes, the news photographs, video and audio were both stunning and provocative. The world that the exhibit... More

Officially opened in 2009, this museum is the largest satellite of Russia's Hermitage Museum. The classically styled building, situated on the Amstel River, was originally built as a home for the elderly, and came to be known as Amstelhof. The temporary exhibit we came to see was entitled "1917. Romanovs & Revolution. The End of Monarchy." This segment of Russian... More

The staff was overall friendly and they allowed us to check into our room early. when we asked where the elevator was to get to our fourth floor room they told us the stairs were on the left. The stairs are... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
