About Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn

Built for Catherine I of Russia, the Kadriorg Palace dates back to the early 18th century and is loved for its Petrine Baroque architecture. The palace holds foreign art in the Kadriorg Art Museum but its charm is overwhelmingly seen from its exteriors as well.

The Great Hall is the highlight of the palace with embellishments customized to incorporate Catharine’s name along with other additions. Do take a walk in the Kadriorg garden that adjoins the palace to complete the experience.

Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn Reviews

  • A very lovely palace with a nice art exhibition inside. It was a lot of fun to walk through all the rooms which themselves were decorated some beautifully. The grand hall is amazing. There are two large fireplaces with an amazing mural on the ceiling. The height of the ceiling in the grand hall is also well over 3.5 meters tall giving the space a large open feel.

  • Doesn’t get much more stunning than this. The building is stunning inside and out, incredible artwork. A beautifully maintained piece of history.

  • Nice museum in the Kadriorg palace. Worth visiting as much for the exposition as for the building itself! They are also hosting small classic music concerts sometimes.

  • Good place to be with family. Recommended to visit if you are an art lover

  • Once you finished seeing the Old Town, it's wise to spend half a day discovering the Kadriorg Palace and the Park around it. This grand, baroque palace built for Peter the Great in 1718 now houses the Art Museum of Estonia’s foreign collection. Designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, the palace and surrounding manicured gardens are a humbling example of Tsarist extravagance. Surrounding the Palace are several interesting palace side buildings and the Presidential Palace used as an office by Estonia’s head of state.
