Close to Kumu art museum in walking distance you will find Kadriorg palace and garden. Nice to visit to learn more about Russian influence and historical heritage. The palace itself is quite small but still nice. Recommend :)

Considering the fact that Estonia is a tiny country which has never had kings or queens of itself, the palace is fine. However, the art collection there is better than the palace. In addition, it has a very nice park surrounding it, so the best time to visit it is from early spring to late autumn.

This little palace with surrounding park is an absolute must to visit once in Tallinn. A little Versailles!

By European standards this is a very small palace. That said, it is ornate and beautiful. There is a lot of art of varying quality throughout. The building is not overly huge, so you will not risk someone getting bored halfway through. Also, the price for all sights in Estonia is so reasonable that it's a shame not to do... More

This palace was founded by Peter the Great. The building itself is quite stunning and the gardens surrounding the palace are just beautiful. If your in Tallinn make the effort to see it.

This very nice preamble to the Peterhof Palace - small but very neat and quaint. The outside of building is distinctly Russian.

We walked around the grounds to see the gardens, swans, and palace. It was amazing to see the area first hand and close up. This can't be found in many countries today - walking in the parking lot of the president's offices/home. Beautiful, somewhat quiet area to visit and relax.

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
