Kadriorg Palace

Kadriorg can be considered to be the grandest example of palace and park design in Estonian architectural history. The palace, originally an imperial summer residence, has been extremely well preserved since the early 18th century. Designed to resemble the Italian palaces of the time, the palace has a facade which is three levels at the front and sides and two levels at the rear in a mix of architectural styles. A banquet hall and winter garden were added to the rear facade of the palace in 1933/34.
Did you know...? *Today the palace is home to the foreign art collection of the Estonian Art Museum.

  • Split second decision to visit this Palace

    We had just arrived to meet our ship in Tallinn when offered a chance to hop on a tour bus and see this palace. It isn't big or chock full of pieces but the history is interesting and the gardens...

  • Small baroque treasure

    The palace is not big, but the Grand Hall and the paintings are worth to see. Very well-kept and visitor-friendly place, with a fine choice of Russian painters' works, such as Korovin, Aivazovsky...

  • Worth visiting it!

    Great palace, especially for the ambients. Not really for the paintings. Wonderful view of the park. Good written explanation in english, so that no further guide is necessary.
