The Kadriorg is a large green area of Tallinn located to the north-east of the historic city centre. This area sits right on the edge of the Gulf of Finland and centers around the Kadrioru Park.
The two kilometres or so to the park can make for a relaxing half hour stroll or a bus ride down the Narva Maantee. The parks is particularly beautiful in the summer and offers a large number of alleyways meandering between historic houses, two Palaces, a Swan-filled lake and a couple of small streams.
The Kadriorg Palace is at the front of the Park, nearest to Tallinn's Old Town. This historic building is worth visiting in its own right with a beautiful façade and grand interior decoration. Its Baroque style was a favourite of Russia's Peter the Great who built the Palace and the surrounding gardens, fountains and parkland as a summer retreat from his main residence in St Petersburg.
The art collection contains a large number of paintings dating from the 16th to 18th century by a number of Europe's most influential artists of the period as well as modern sculpture and historical objects which date from the 18th century to present day.
