Kadriorg Park

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.

  • Beautiful palace and gardens

    I did not visit it inside, but the building facade and the gardens, as well as the whole park around are very nice place to visit for tourists who want to see more than only the old town of Tallinn.

  • Impressive small palace with nice collection of Dutch and German paintings

    Former Russian Czar summer residence (one of many) in beautiful large park. The palace is well preserved outside and very impressed inside. Art collection represents mainly classic era W.European...

  • Delightful place

    Fabulous gardens to wonder around and lots of places benches to sit and watch the world go by. The buildings are beautiful and well worth seeing. A great escape from the city and well worth a visit.
