Tallinn, Estonia

Kadrioru Park

At over 70 hectares, Kadrioru is one of the most prominent parks in Tallinn. There are miles of paved sidewalks throughout the park, but some of the most popular areas to sightsee are the flower beds around the swan pond and the grand promenade leading up to the president’s palace. Russian Tsar Peter I first ordered construction of the park in 1718, but building continued through the next three centuries, resulting in a pleasant array of unique architecture, landscape styles, monuments, and museums. The park is free and open 24/7, so you can go anytime and start anywhere.

We’ve mapped out a route to the park from downtown, running east on  Narva Maantee for 2 km. The perimeter loop of the park is 2.5 km. with add-ons possible using the park’s interior paths.
