Tsars and Knights - The Romanovs' Love Affair with the Middle Ages

Through more than 250 objects from the European medieval art collection and the Arsenal of the State Hermitage in St Petersburg, the exhibition tells tales of tsars and knights. They bring the Middle Ages – and its nineteenth-century revival in Europe and at the Russian court – to life, with knights and ladies, courtly love and tournaments. The impressive design is simultaneously heroic and romantic. The highlight is a spectacular hall of knights with a tournament setting in which mounted knights are engaged in a joust. On view from 19 November until the summer of 2021.
