Kadriorg Park, Tallinn

4.7
#1 of 114 in Parks in Estonia
Home to a royal palace, Estonia's presidential residence, and a host of museums, Kadriorg Park serves as the primary green space for the greater Tallinn area. The park's network of paths and trails will take you through thick forest, past decorative ponds, and around lush garden plots. You'll find several art museums displaying works ranging from historical to contemporary. Visit the unassuming personal cottage of Peter the Great of Russia and the ornate 18th-century palace he built for his wife, Empress Catherine. Don't miss the angel-topped memorial to the Russalka, constructed to honor a Russian warship lost in 1893, which is one of many statues throughout the park.

  • From Vanalina Park can be reached on foot, it is 2, 5 km. Then take a walk along the promenade along the shore of the Baltic Sea. Intimate, Chamber PAC and Palace. Worth a look.

  • Kadriorg Park is very beautiful. Walking even in winter carries its mystery and mystique. Quietly, quietly. Many walk with children, there is a playground, skating rink in winter is. Museums in the Park, but we have not got, so won't say anything. Reached the Mermaid monument, very impressive. And next on the Bank of the Fed seagulls and ducks.

  • We visited in August 2017. Internally a masterpiece and beautiful stories. But, the gardens were not well maintained

  • Great to walk around on a sunny day. Avoid Monday as things are closed on Monday. Peter the greats cottage is worth a look for a small fee and the walk to the sea is nice. The palace gardens are beautiful and free. I've been here twice, first time was on a Monday.
  • Such a great park. Have visited here several times and always eager to go back. It is big enough to have something for everyone. Museums, children's amusement area, park itself. And it's always in good condition.
  • Absolutely beautiful to check out in the fall as long as you have a warm coat on. The Baltic Sea, Art Muesuem, and even Presidential Mansion are all within a short walk.
  • A great and peaceful park. Recently attended the annual #LightWalks Festival, to celebrate the end of summer and beginning of autumn
  • It's really pretty from spring to august, the park is well kept and you can just chill there or even go to an art museum right next to the park (KUMU). Nice and peaceful and huuuge! They have several kids playgrounds there, they have divided playgrounds depending on children age group, so it would be easy to socialize.

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. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. 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.
