Tallinn City Tour+Kadriorg Palace
This European medieval city is well preserved and was declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Numerous Russian Orthodox churches, Lutheran and Dominican monasteries which are real witnesses of historical past of the city (a beautiful Alexander Nevsky Orthodox cathedral that dominates the city with its black domes, St. Mary’s Cathedral, the largest Lutheran church in Estonia, St. Olav's Church which was the highest building of the medieval Europe) are bound to attract your attention.
Following city tour of the downtown of Tallinn, you will visit Kadriorg park and palace complex created by czar Peter the Great for his beloved wife Catherine I. This is a great tour for art lovers.
The palace currently houses the Kadriorg Art Museum, a branch of the Art Museum of Estonia, displaying foreign art from the 16th to 20th centuries.
The park has two sides – wilder part with large trees and walking paths and the two leveled baroque side with swan pond and rose gardens. While walking in rose gardens take a look at the building right behind the Palace – it is another important building – current Presidential Palace of Estonia. If the blue- black- white flag is up, the Estonian President is at home!
