Why locals love it

Kadriorg Palace was built in 1725 as Peter the Great needed a quiet getaway from his empire's busy capital. Today it serves as an art museum consisting mainly of foreign works of art from the 16th to the 20th century. It's newly renovated and only reopened in February 2013.

Why you should visit it

Admire the beautiful baroque building designed by the Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, visit the Kadriorg Art Museum within or simly wander around in the picture-perfect gardens at the back. The fancy courtyard is a popular setting for wedding photos, so on Saturdays you'll surely spot a couple or two.

Special tip

Take tram no. 1 or 3, get off at the final stop (Weizenbergi) and continue walking in the same direction to find the palace.
