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.

    Very beautiful

    The Palace is closed on a Monday so we could not go inside, but walked around it and admired the building and gardens. Tranquility and open spaces with beautiful tended gardens is what comes to mind...

    Russian grandeur on a modest scale

    I came here after having spent time in St Petersburg visiting the grand Russian palaces. Kadriorg, whilst being a former palace of Peter the Great, is on a much smaller and less opulent scale...
