Why locals love it

They call Tallinn the green city, and with good reason. Take a wrong turn and you might find yourself in a place that vaguely resembles a jungle. Come to think of it, that might actually be a "right" turn. By the way, the park is actually named after Peter the Great's wife Catherine. Catherine – Kadri. Get it?

Why you should visit it

The reason why the Kadriorg park is different is because the Russian Czar, Peter came over and reckoned the local way of doing parks was totally wrong and taught the local savages – the German landlords – how to use a drawing board. In fact, we can't think of other parks in the country that have this much symmetry to them.

Special tip

You know about geocaching? Well there is one secret hidden in this park.

Although Tallinn does have a few green specks scattered around downtown, this is the only real park.
