The Kadriorg Park is Estonia's most outstanding palace and city park, occupying almost 70 hectares. The park was laid in 1718 by the order of Peter I, as a gift to his wife, Catherine I. Visitors can enjoy walks around the "Swan Pond" and the promenade leading to the palace. The park is a home to such museums as KUMU, the Kadriorg Art Museum, the Mikkel Museum, as well as monuments in honor of the sculptor Amandus Adamson, writer FR Kreutzwald, and painter Jaan Coort.
The Kadriorg Palace is designed in the Baroque style. The palace has a luxurious interior in which the collection of foreign art of the Estonian Art Museum is exhibited.
The Mikkel Museum (located next to the Kadriorg Palace) is the only state museum in Estonia, dedicated to a private collection. The Mikkel Museum acquaints visitors with collectors and works of art from private collections and temporary exhibitions.
