Kadriorg Palace & Park

Kadriorg Palace was built in 1725 by Russia’s Peter the Great for his wife Catherine I.  When Estonia gained its independence in 1919, the Palace became Estonia’s Art Museum in 1921.  During World War II, Germany occupied the Palace and then the Russians.  Finally, in 1991, Estonia became independent once again!

After years of renovation, the Palace was reopened in 2000 displaying foreign art.  The Palace, gardens, and park are lovely!

We walked over 2 miles from our Airbnb to the Palace…

There are plenty of park benches to relax on and enjoy being in nature.
