This is a resplendent summer residence, built in 1718 by Tzar Peter I, for his wife Catherine. In Estonian, Kadriorg means "Catherine's Valley". The Italian architect Niccolo Michetti was specially brought here from Rome, and commissioned to build this place in the Italian architectural style of that period. With its gleaming red and yellow colors, it is a very stately... More

Our tour guide went on far too mch about Peter the Great and bored the entire group whch was a shame. However, we went and enjyed the rest of the buidings and garden despite her :).

This old palace, built by the Zar Peter the Great has very nicely been restaured and now houses the collection of old Estonian Art. The main room is beautiful and there are concerts held here regularly. The walls of the rooms have different very distinct coloring and when you look through the open doors into 2 or 3 rooms the...

Lovely palace on pretty grounds, art museum is impressive. Not very big, so a couple hours is plenty of time to visit.

Take the number 1 or 3 tram to the terminus at Kadriog park and wander straight through the park. Then you will come across the palace on your left. There are some lovely art works and some rooms are furnished. This is the palace that Peter the great had built for his wife.

A beautiful palace that also serves as an art museum. The main hall was excellent and almost alone worth the entrance. Lots of "fake" art shown i.e. work that was a copy of a more famous artist's work done by his/her students/studio. But it was clearly noted which ones this applied to. The outside of the palace was lovely. There... More

The same architect whom built the winter palace in St Petersburg for the Russian ruler Peter the great. It was a weekday when I went there were only less than 10 people there. Pleasant! Didn't bother renting an audio as there are cards on each corner explaining the painting, sculpture and displays. I did purchase a combo ticket with entrance... More

It was nice to go to the park, and we had a very nice lunch there, but though nice, this museum was not really that special.

As beautiful as the palace is the gardens are spectacular. I would recommend a guided tour as there is just so much history there. This is one of the attractions included if you get the Tallinn cards as well I would definitely recommend visiting in the summer.
