Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn

4.1
#7 of 65 in Museums in Tallinn
Experience the full scope of royal grandeur at Kadriorg Palace. Built by Peter the Great as a summer residence for his wife Catherine I, the palace is a stunning example of Baroque architecture. Even though Catherine never used the palace, her initials are visible on some ornaments. Apart from housing the royal family, the palace was used as the residence of the Estonian president before it was largely neglected during the Soviet era. Now fully restored, it features impressive grounds, as well as a lavish interior that houses the Art Museum of Estonia's collection of foreign art. Learn about the palace's history and artwork during a guided tour. Elevators make the floors of the palace wheelchair-accessible; ramps can be provided upon request.

  • This morning we take the tram no. 3 to Katharinental Castle. In 1718, Tsar Peter I commissioned the Italian Nicola Michetti to build a summer residence. The construction of the castle and the construction of the baroque garden with 500 trees took twenty years. The more modest summer house of Peter I housed the Tsar during the construction period. Katharinental Castle was so well liked by the ruler that he also involved Michetti in the construction of Peterhof Castle near St. Petersburg. The site is also home to the Estonian President's office. The building dates back to the first half of the 20th century and has been adapted to the style of the castle.
