The Kadriorg Muesum of Estonian art

kadriorg

 

“The Kadriorg Park is one of the places most favoured by the people of Tallinn to spend their leisure hours. It is a joy to walk in, with its shady avenues splashed with sunlight, open lawns and calm lake with white swans and the fresh air blowing in from the nearby sea. The graceful squirrels who live in the park are far from shy, they are used to kindness and respond at once. The huge boulders left here by the last ice age also import their character to the park. These stone giants have stood here for more than thousand years and the park itself is two and a half centuries old.”
