Kadriorg Park, Tallinn

(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Tallinn vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Kadriorg Park and other attractions in Tallinn.

  • A walk through the Kadriorg Park and visit to the Kardriog Palace and the House of Peter the great is a must if you want to understand better the history of Tallinn. The Park is easily accessible by tram from the historic city centre (tram 3).

  • Completely ordinary Park, not going any comparison with Peterghof. Better to just take a walk along the promenade and admire the swans and going to port old town ferries. In the park there are no specifics, just a small area of the track.

  • Great place to go with children and family for picnic or just a stroll. Lot of playing grounds, exquisite Japanese garden and Swan pond, many good cafes. KUMU and beach are also nearby and all this is...  more »

  • Easily the most curated (in a good way) park in Tallinn. Has lots of differently stylized areas (English vs French and Japanese parks) and many private nooks and crannies for picnics with either large groups or with your date. The park grounds have about five art and history museums in or around them as well as the president's private residence, which gives the entire area a safe and polite feeling. Definitely recommend a visit!
  • Very beautiful place to walk around and explore.
  • Walk through the park, away from the sights. It's absolutely beautiful. Was there mid October which is 3/4 way thru the autumn. Very serene and scenic park.
  • Kadrioru is a big and very green park as it is supposed to be. I especially like a small part of it - the Japanese garden. At the beginning of the fall it hosts the Lights festival - the park is decorated with lots of candles and at the end you will see the firework. looks amazing!
  • Nice place for walking. Nicely groomed landscape. If you're lucky, might pump into the President
