Combine a visit to see Russia, Royalty & the Romanovs at The Queen's Gallery, Edinburgh with a visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the home of Scottish royal history.

The exhibition tells the story of the familial, political, diplomatic and artistic associations between Britain and Russia and their royal families from the late 17th century through to Russia’s last emperor Nicholas II and beyond. The unique relationship between the two countries is explored through portraits, sculpture, photographs and archival documents. Many of the works of art were commissioned as diplomatic gifts, others as intimate personal mementos, including miniature masterpieces by Fabergé.
