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.
It is nice park that can be reached walking from Viru Keskus along Narva Mantee St (about 30 min) or by trams # 1 or 3 to Kadriorg stop. We visited in early April but suppose that on May the flowers...
Well worth a visit to see the Katharinenpalast from the Czar era and the Estonian Art Museum. At it´s best in the early spring.
This was a pleasant trip away from Old Town, easy to get there by Tram. There are some interesting portraits and some nice chandeliers
