Tallinn has an outstanding range of beautiful architectural attractions but at Kadriorg Park it is nature and the open air that takes center stage. This picturesque park is also home to the Kumu Art Museum so visitors can be assured of plenty to see and do during their visit. If you find yourself in Tallin during the summer months, you will find that this beautiful old park is the perfect place to take advantage of the glorious sun that shines down on Estonia.
A retreat fit for royals
Tallinn is a vibrant modern city and an unmistakable buzz runs through its busy streets. Amidst this lively hustle and bustle, Kadriorg Park has provided an oasis of calm since it was first established in 1718. Back then, only the Tsar of Russia and his family got to fully enjoy the park but now it is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. Kadriorg Park boasts a number of delightful features, including a perfectly symmetrical Swan Pond, a Japanese garden, and vast grassy areas that are perfect for picnics and sunbathing. At the heart of the park is the magnificent Kadriorg Palace, a magnificent baroque mansion that housed Russian nobility throughout the ages.
More than a park
In addition to the natural attractions of Kadiorg Park, the expansive area is also home to a number of museums and galleries. Along with museums that celebrate the works of local cultural icons such as writers Eduard Vilde and A.H. Tammsaare are galleries and museums that showcase foreign art and cater to children too.
