Kadriorg Park, Tallinn

4.7
#1 of 62 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. By using our Tallinn vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Kadriorg Park and other attractions in Tallinn.

    A relaxing walk in the Green! The Park is really nice and well maintained, you will not find even a cigarette off the ground. Is not to be missed if you are in Tallinn.

    Kadriorg park is about a 20 minute walk from the city centre, originally created by Peter the Great as a homage to Catherine. It has a series of museums and nice features and artworks. Well worth a visit especially on a sunny day.

    This is a beautiful regular and not so regular park with an original pond and authentic palace style building (art museum inside). I enjoy just coming to sit and watch ducks here, as well as walking and sightseeing or running (not that I enjoy running in general, but here it makes more pleasure to me).

    Great place if you love flowers. There is also a big playground for children nearby. A good option for a family

    Mkay nothing as grandiose as the photos suggest. It's free though so there's not too much to complain about. Well, if it's in your way, why not otherwise pass.

    Very nice park, the Japanese garden is so special. Although there are completely no place to sit, you really want to stay there and observe the Beauty.

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.
