This palace is built under the orders of the Romanovs to be a summer palace. Unlike many other such palaces, this has remained in one piece through it's history and fittingly it houses an art museum. Most of the art is what has remained of the collection, which was housed in the palace before World War II, thus there will... More

This is a lovely place and not overwhelming in size as some palaces are. The small gardens are formal with a great waterfeature. The main hall upstairs is gorgeous and you can look down on it from windows in a higher room. The art is varied and we'll spaced out. There is a Clockroom with lockers so you can leave... More

We spent a few hours exploring the grounds of the palace and the museum inside. Everything about this palace is so elegant and well preserved. I found the art inside to be extremely alluring and helped tell the story of it's origin. Well worth the visit.

I'll not write about this very special, beautiful and modest palace. It worth a visit, if you are not in hurry. A permanent exposition is good and there is always some interesting temporary exhibition. I just want to point on Palace Music Concert Series, one, they arrange in a large ceremonial hall of the palace. It might be nice to... More

A short tram ride from the centre this former Tsarist palace is now the official residence of the President of the Republic. He's only there on official occasions and its main purpose is now as an art gallery. Admission and the tram ride there are free with a Tallinn Card.

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

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...
