We were the only visitors in this small cottage when we waded our way through the February snow. It was pleasantly warm inside and well laid-out. There's not a huge amount to see, but there is an informative short video shown in the basement as...More

This is Peter the Great's summer house. It contains a few period rooms and a short video. It is worth a quick look.

I wasn't expecting much from this place but it is a nice little museum. Russian Tsar Peter the Great stayed in this little house while his Palace was under construction. Typical for these kinds of museums, you'll see his bed, dinning table, chairs and some...More

Just as we passed further upward from the Kadriorg Palace Museum and presidential residence, along the alleys of beautiful trees and beside the charming lawns with the ponds and fountains, we suddenly got in the front of one humble 17th century cottage. That is where...More
