Tallinn

Kadriorg Palace and Art Museum

  Weizenbergi 37 ,   Kadriorg          +372 606 64 00     08 Nov 2019

Italian master architect Niccolo Michetti designed this magnificent, Northern Baroque palace in 1718 at the request of Russian Tsar Peter the Great, who intended to use it as a summer residence for the royal family. The emperor named the estate for his wife Catherine I ('Catherine' is 'Kadri' in Estonian), hence the name of the area. The palace is now home to the Kadriorg Art Museum. In addition to perusing the nation's collection of foreign art, visitors get to see the mind-bogglingly ornate Great Hall, and the room upstairs that served as president's office in the 1930s. Don't miss the lavish manicured gardens, out back. Until March 22, 2020: Ars Academica: The University of Tartu Art Collection.

Why are the three major art galleries/museums in Tallinn ALL CLOSED on the same day, Monday? Couldn't you all co-operate and have one of them open on a Monday? Not surprisingly, my comments have arisen from the fact that I am planning a visit to Tallinn .... on a Monday.
