As Rosbalt was informed by the museum's press office, the opening ceremony was accompanied by fireworks and, according to Director of the Hermitage Museum Mikhail Piotrovsky, Hermitage Amsterdam is the next step in the two countries cultural relations, which were initially brought about by Peter the Great.'

The first exhibition, entitled Greeks' Gold and scheduled to open on February 28, will feature jewelry made by Greeks living on the Black Sea over 2500 years ago. The next exhibition will be the project Nikolai and Alexandra, which will be devoted to the life of the last Russian tsar. There are also plans to exhibit 18th century Venetian art.

The press office pointed out that this is not the first foreign branch of the Hermitage Museum to be opened. There are also branches in London and Las Vegas. However, the Amsterdam branch is expected to become the leading branch of the museum abroad containing the largest exhibits of the Russian museum's collection.
