The tour to The Kadriorg Palace starts from your hotel in Tallinn. After arriving in at the palace, founded in 1721 by the Russian Emperor Peter the Great as a gift to his wife Catherine II for their summer residence, tour the well-preserved main hall with its rich stucco and ceiling paintings. Perhaps the best example of Baroque architecture not only in Estonia, but also tsarist Russia, it is a treasure of northern Europe. Excellent acoustics and the beautiful interior of this two-storied cupola hall make it one the best chamber music concert halls in Tallinn. Your tour also takes you through a marvelous park with a Baroque flower garden, Swan Pond and smaller park ensemble buildings like a summer house, kitchen house and guard's house which surround both the palace and a second nearby estate, the residence of the president.
