    It is in a middle-class House of modest size that Grand Pierre and his wife stayed in Tallinn. Original fine furniture. This is a brief but interesting visit. Video interesting on the history of Tallinn and this House in the basement.

    Walking on Kadriorgu-you can and visit the House of Peter. If you include the imagination, it's easy to imagine that from minute to minute return the King. Look at the ancient mirror, Picturing yourself too, if not Queen, Maid of honor. Read the letters of Peter, spread out on the window sill.

    Another nice historic house museum is the Peter the Great museum, it is only a few minutes walk from both Kumu and Kadriorg Palace art museums and it will tell you a little bit of a story about Peter the first, and it is only €2 and 10 minutes of your time and it will ensure it stays open in the future

    A small museum in the House which acquired the Peter the great, together with a plot of land for the construction of a summer residence. Interior design and its elements are preserved, the Museum with the year 1806. During the inspection, you will see the feature documentary. Thanks to the staff of the Museum, wonderful people!

    A very interesting Museum, a small course yet, read the story and just enjoy the atmosphere of the time well.
