Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn

4.0
#7 of 43 in Museums in Tallinn
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.

    It is really worth to take the way out to Kadriorg. It is very beautiful and the park equally. Was there in december, but even though it was cold, it was worth the experience.

    I expect greater as a result of the images that I had seen when preparing my holiday program. However the collections are interesting, the place is very beautiful, the temporary exhibition was interesting but a little short for my taste. We had a good time. However we have not benefited from the garden because of the very wet weather.

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities.

Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
