Well presented, lovely decoration and furnishing, some good paintings, gift shop has stuff better than Old Town tat at fair prices, cafe, loos. Allow about an hour. TIP: if going by tram, when you get to the Kadriorg stop you can't clearly see the palace. Get off anyway, walk back the way you came, and go left up the avenue... More

We were very impressed with the grandeur of the Great Hall, and the marquetry room, as well as the entire palace & grounds. The pairings are mainly Dutch masterpieces, BUT, anyone lucky to be visiting before 07 September 2014 will be able to marvel at the amazing collection of silhouettes completed by Baroness Eveline von Maydell. We took a few... More

I took advantage of Tallinn card ia. when I visited this beautiful building, which brings a small taste of the St. Petersburg State Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace to Tallinn. At the moment there is "The exhibition of Eveline von Maydell: A World in Black and White, silhouettes 29/03/14 - 09/07/2014. Middle of the summer the park is at most... More

For Tallinn visiters I definitely suggest to a pay a visit to this beautiful palace Peter the Great built as summer residence for his wife. It is situated in lovely park in Kadriorg, very near to seaside, so if weather is nice you can combine three things - enjoy the palace and its compact art collection, make a nice walk... More

Set amont the beautiful park, this palace is a nice place to visit during the summer. A good substitute for tourists that didn't go to St.Petersburg and would like to get a glimpse of Peter the Great grand real-estate.

Very beautiful hall in middle of museum. Even would say its breathtaking. Nice paintings that often don't have proper lightening. Overall worth the time to spend an afternoon.

The palace has been restored and is in great shape. In fact, even though it has an art collection, you could go just to see the rooms themselves. The Great Hall is beautiful and elegant. We loved the marquetry room with amazing wood inlay panels of various areas in Tallinn. The gardens were beautifully maintained outside the palace and elsewhere... More

Wanted to see something else than the old town for a change, and went here. Very nice architecture and I can imagine the surrounding areas are amazing in the summer (visited in april, still some snow around). The art museum was OK, I'm not a big art guy, but I appreciate the works and think they're nice to look at.... More

A small but beautiful Baroque palace built by Peter the Great. A delightful and sumptuous ceiling in the 'main' hall. Some beautiful rooms with views of the garden which looked lovely even though they were covered in snow. There was a small exhibition of Ilya Repin works which was exceptional. However they had placed some of the paintings directly in... More
