4.3/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • The palace houses some great artwork spread over two floors. The garden in the back is large and beautiful. A coffeeshop is located inside the palace, but the service was very slow. 
  • Beautiful palace which was recently renovated and museum has great artwork. Highly recommended to visit
  • Beautiful building on the outside. I didn't check the art exhibit inside since it's not my style. The gardens outside weren't yet planted as I was there tiwrds the end of winter, but I'm sure it's beautiful in full bloom.
  • Art gallery and great insights to the noble way of life of the past.
  • Small palace, or better to say villa for Russian emperors. Very nice presentation inside and good architecture.
  • Nice museum. Beautiful garden outside.
