Create an itinerary including Kadriorg Park
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.

  • wonderful park, lush and green, just so sad that all the museums on the terrain, are closed on a Monday.

  • Kadriorg Park is a gorgeous place that's perfect for taking a walk in or reading a book. I attended a benefit concert for Ukraine that was held here and also was able to dress up in historic costumes....  more

  • Had a relaxing walk around the place. There's apparently an art exhibition too, but it closed when I visited.

  • Beloved by Tallinn natives, the sprawling Kadriorg Park is one of the city’s major attractions and is home to several notable landmarks. The park stretches for 1.5 km from its southwest corner to the northeast. With its landscaped gardens, forested paths, statues, and ponds, Kadriorg Park is a gem of a place to explore. The beautiful Swan Lake is one of the park’s highlights, and its elegant island gazebo is mostly enjoyed by swans. If you are here in summer, you’ll often see plenty of picnickers and sunbathers.
  • Gorgeous park in the middle of Tallinn. Really nice space to be around some nature and greenery in the city. Lovely fountain and not far from the palace which is also stunning.
  • Very nice park in Tallinn. At some places tha grass was not cut, but that wilderness just made it even better. There are some water features and nice houses or palaces inside. Even squirrels can be seen.
  • Great symmetrical park. It’s quiet, has plenty of parking, castles, fountains, footpaths, flowers, children’s play areas (at least 2) and cafeterias offering ice cream and cakes. The park took its present form in the interwar period. One of my favorite places in Tallinn
  • Nice and well-maintained park in the city. Many popular and regular public activities are hosting here. Also the park is the house for some hedgehogs 🦔 and hares 🐇. You will enjoy walking here for a whole year.
