  • Walking on snow-covered Park Kardiorg we stumbled upon the House-Museum of Peter I small house small, but cozy and very interesting. You take the authentic atmosphere of the time and learn how Peter the great lived in this House he lived when he came to Estonia, while the Palace was built. Peter wasn't whimsical so modest and the House. But in the House, there are many genuine things of the Emperor-furniture, mirrors, tableware, bed, fragments of genuine sex and much more. Very friendly when all of us showed told that bed that stands in a genuine and in Peterhof-copy. Portrait of Mikhail Romanov is genuine, but the copy is in the Tretyakov Gallery. In the House floor 2-bedroom, living room, kitchen. The second floor was added later. You can also view a small 10-minute historical film including in Russian. Admission is 2 euro, pensioners, schoolchildren and students 1 euro.

  • Is the place to be told in a small house located in the Park and feeling that it went through it so. Felt should go and especially this location.

  • Small and cosy cabin of Peter the great, simple and not luxurious, but this does not diminish its interestingness. Login-feeling. In the House on two floors (bedroom, living room/study, dining room, kitchen). Probably the most interesting thing in this museum that preserved objects from the time (no copy), and the originals are always look more interesting than copy. Fun fact that bed in this small house of Peter the original and its copy stands in Peterhof. Another Pearl of the Museum-a portrait of Mikhail Romanov, a copy of which is located in the Tretyakov Gallery. When entering view offer a short (10 min) film about the House (worth a look:)
