July is the 300th birthday of the picturesque Kadriorg Park, and along with enjoying a walk through the park and taking part in the jubilee celebrations, it’s also worth visiting the local museums and spending a nice time in the neighbouring district of Pirita.

Free with Tallinn Card:

Kadriorg Palace – Kadriorg Art Museum

Kadriorg Palace is a baroque imperial palace surrounded by fountains and beautiful gardens. The palace was built by Russian Tsar Peter I as a gift to his wife Catherine, which is also where Kadriorg received its name (Catherine’s Valley). The palace displays a collection of Western European and Russian art.

Peter the Great House Museum

Peter the Great House Museum opened to visitors in 1806, making it Tallinn’s oldest museum. The 17th century summer cottage was acquired by Russian Tsar Peter I and used as his residence during visits to Tallinn. The museum exhibit displays unique items which surrounded Peter I and Catherine I in their everyday lives. The house also has its own collection of paintings, the jewel of which is an original portrait of Tsar Mikhail I Fjedorovich Romanov.
