Tallinn – Visit to Kadriorg Park and KUMU Arts Museum

Medium

Enjoy a private 3-hour excursion to the Kadriorg Park and KUMU Arts Museum!

Founded in 1721 by the Russian Emperor Peter the Great, as a gift to his wife Catherine II for their summer residence, the Kadriorg Palace is a beautiful palace with a well-preserved main hall with rich stucco and ceiling paintings. This palace is the best example of Baroque architecture not only in Estonia, but also tsarist Russia as well as the whole northern Europe. Its excellent acoustic and the beautiful interior of its two-storied cupola hall make the Kadriorg Palace one of the best chamber music concert halls in Tallinn.

After visiting the Kadriorg Palace, you will visit KUMU Arts Museum, one of the largest museums in Estonia. KUMU presents both permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. The main collection covers Estonian art from the 18th century onwards, including works from the occupations period (1940–1991) and showing both Socialist Realism and what was then Nonconformist art. Temporary exhibitions include both foreign and Estonian modern and contemporary art.
