Stunning ballroom

You should visit this museum for the ballroom alone, and perhaps the adjacent dining room. The art is not that interesting, but the castle itself is.

The palace itself was easy to go to with a taxi (cheap way of transportation in Tallinn, use it) and it was very beautiful indeed. The park surrounding the palace is a great place for a stroll or a longer wandering. The great hall was spectacular and the whole palace displayed the art inside very gracefully. The collection at display... More

It's a spectacular old mansion surrounded by expansive grounds that are perfect for a stroll or a long walk, depending on your frame of mind. The entire location has been re-furbished and maintained and offers a glimpse of old world extravagance and beauty.

Be sure to take the tram to the palace. Grounds around the palace create a beautiful green space. Be sure to visit small tea shop and bakery you will find a couple block before the palace. It overlooks a lovely pond. The palace has a very interesting art exhibit.

Whatever you do in Tallinn, make sure you visit this palace. It stands in a magnificent park which is so large the palace itself is hard to find! Take the left hand avenue at the side of the park, and prepare to be amazed by the incredibly beautiful and colourful architecture. Our major disappointment was that we could not view... More

Easily accessible using public transportation, although expect to walk a bit due to the size of the grounds. If in Tallinn the palace is worth visiting although don't expect anything quite like palaces of larger countries such as France or Russia etc.

Although we arrived late a the castle, after the opening hours, we enjoyed the view from outside. We liked it a lot, as we appreciate Russian architecture, art and culture. It was very romantic for us, a couple, as we were admiring the Palace at sunset, at the end of a sunny beautiful day, sitting on a bench, with the... More

I had a few hours to spare with my husband before checking in our hotel, so we decided to take a morning walk from harbour to Kadriorg Park. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side, so we ended up visiting the Palace. It was reasonably priced, and as we suspected there was very little to see and understand without a... More

Everyone raves about the Old Town but the real must-see of the city is at the end of the very convenient no. 3 tram to Kadriorg. The Kadriorg Palace is a truly stunning building that houses an excellent collection of European painting. The highlight is a fantastic series of portraits of Russian royalty. The Entrance Hall cannot be missed -... More

I visited this palace 19.06.2016 nearly at 11 o'clock. I was alone. As a result 4 tickets instead of 1 with no any check. Only stickers. So in the result 22 euros instead of 5,50 as I found out later. Another woman from museum asked me where is my ticket. I showed her 4 stickers on the paper as had... More
