Kadriorg Park is the most outstanding palatial and urban park in Estonia, covering around 70 hectares. Its construction began in 1718 on the orders of Russian tsar Peter I. Elements of park design from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries can be seen here.
The most popular places for a stroll in the park are the flower beds surrounding the Swan Pond and the promenade leading from there to the president's palace.
There are a number of museums in the park, including KUMU (the Estonian Art Museum), Kadriorg Art Museum and the Mikkeli Museum, as well as monuments to such cultural figures as sculptor Amandus Adamson, author F. R. Kreutzwald and artist Jaan Koort.
Exceptional building, and incredibly nice park where you can go around to include a Japanese garden. Worth a look.
the Kadriorg neighbourhood is just beautiful with the wooden houses- a wonderful place in summer for walks and to admire the palace
Very pleasant even in winter, around here you can find cosy wooden houses, from the top a straight path leads you down to the sea.
