  • This small house in the suburban area of that time Peter 1 purchased in 1711 (now here tram no. 4). He's been here several times and ordered to erect nearby kadriorg Palace for his wife Catherine. Cottage has just been restored and is now available to visit year round. Here are preserved the authentic stuff Peter and atmosphere of that era. About the history of visiting Tallinn, Kadriorg Peter tells the movie that can be viewed in all languages. One of the most interesting exhibits is a portrait of his grandfather Peter, Tsar Mikhail Fedorovich, who turned out in Tallinn still at 17 b. still have very interesting lifetime busts of Peter and Catherine. Probably, the Museum something repeats the Summer Palace or House of Peter in St. Petersburg, but his visiting emperors in Tallinn not only so often. Who was not all in petergof here to learn details about the Petrine era!

  • On the edge of Kadriorg Park is this wonderful House-Museum, which Estonians lovingly care. Modest white cottage, which in the period from 1714 to 1723, stopped Peter I and Catherine I, during his visits to revel (Tallinn), in the 18th century it was City outskirts, planted cabbage. House favorite Peter due to certain similarities with the bjurgerskim estate was sold to the King for the unthinkable at the time money is three and a half thousand thalers. Prince Menshikov storgoval it from their friends — Alexander Drenteln family after the death of Peter and Catherine, the House was abandoned, but in a sign of the preservation of heritage on the orders of Mr. Petrovsky, Alexander I in 1804, the year it began to restore and in 1806, he was filled with furniture Peter the great's times. Liked beautiful 18-century mirrors, made in Baroque style with gold-plated wooden frames with a thin ornament. Furniture that Peter First bought in England, Germany is very well preserved. I seemed to House too too tesnovatym, I'd be in such not lived. But as far as I remember Peter was fear of large spaces. mandatory place to visit all the Russians in Tallinn.

  • Inconspicuous small, comparable to a small house of Peter in St. Petersburg he is not attracted our attention. And appeared in a number of other attractions At scheduled to attend. A great excursion for a little more than an hour, plunged us into war with Sweden and the accession of the Baltic States. Original portraits of Peter the great, his family and descendants, which we know only copies, original items used by Peter. Feeling the life lived by Peter and his time. And peerless guide Maria not only deeply knowing that era, but left it for us. We pretty much travelling, we hardly get such pleasure from tours.

  • I enjoyed this small but atmospheric museum. The basement features a great educational video. The cost was only 3 euros. You won't need more than a half an hour to visit.
  • 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
  • Very charming. And historic important.
  • Small place, but quite interesting.
  • Museum in kadriorg Park
