Kadriorg Palace is a palace situated in Tallinn, Estonia. The palace was built for Catherine I of Russia in the early 18th century on the orders of Peter the Great. It is a fairly large Petrine Baroque palace situated on a large plot of land which includes beautiful gardens. Despite being built for Catherine I of Russia, the palace was hardly used by the Russians before becoming the property of the Estonian State after Estonia gained independence. The palace is currently used to house the Kadriorg Art Museum.
The palace is situated to the east of the city centre. You can get there by taking the 1 or 3 trams to ‘Kadriorg’. The 1, 5, 8, 29, 38, 51 and 60 buses all stop close by.
