Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 这就是著名的卡利科治皇宫了,花园里的种植说实话略显浮夸。1718年-1725年,俄罗斯帝国彼得一世在此修建了它作为临时的避暑住宅,目前王宫开辟为爱沙尼亚艺术博物馆,收藏国际艺术品。 
  • Be sure to visit kadriorg Palace. Remember the era of Peter and Catherine, and feel the difference with contemporary art (Museum Kumu).

  • Setting is in a lovely park. The Palace is interesting with sufficient furniture and others amenities to give a feel luxury. The garden behind is very well maintained. Definitely worthy of a visit.
  • A beautiful palace situated outside the old town and commercial area of Tallinn. The park it resides on is picturesque, check out the statue of Neptune behind the palace! Inside the palace is an art gallery with the paintings separated in different rooms based on the origin of the pieces. I recommend getting the dual ticket to the art gallery next door, with more unique Estonian based pieces. The cafe food is limited and overpriced, but the coffee is good. Recommend checking the place out just for the contrast of architecture on the walk there, Old Town, Commercial, Residential and finally, a palace!
  • I loved the park its just amazing. People are playing disk gold childrens are riding bike calm beatiful place. It has most beatiful green on the grass that I've ever seen in my life.
  • 18 century palace built for Peter the great and his wife Catherine I. Nowadays art museum, small but nice collection of italian, russian, german and Netherlands art. Nice garden, great place for resting on the nature.
  • Nice weather, but some people weren't so nice
