Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn

(260+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
Experience the full scope of royal grandeur at Kadriorg Palace. Built by Peter the Great as a summer residence for his wife Catherine I, the palace is a stunning example of Baroque architecture. Even though Catherine never used the palace, her initials are visible on some ornaments. Apart from housing the royal family, the palace was used as the residence of the Estonian president before it was largely neglected during the Soviet era. Now fully restored, it features impressive grounds, as well as a lavish interior that houses the Art Museum of Estonia's collection of foreign art. Learn about the palace's history and artwork during a guided tour. Elevators make the floors of the palace wheelchair-accessible; ramps can be provided upon request. Kadriorg Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Tallinn Edition.
