See paintings and personal possessions of the Russian tsar at Peter the Great House Museum, a small cottage where Peter the Great allegedly stayed during his visits. Inside the house, walk on the wooden floors of this 17th-century structure. Observe the living room with faded green chairs, view the tiny dining room, and tour the tsar's bedroom with extravagant furniture and upholstery. You'll be able to walk up to the attic and descend to the basement quarters, which have been renovated. Art lovers may also appreciate the collection of valuable Dutch paintings inside the cottage.

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.

  • 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
  • Small place, but quite interesting.
  • Museum in kadriorg Park

  • 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.
