This humble 17th century cottage is where the mightiest of the Russian tsars, Peter the Great, spent his Tallinn stays while the nearby Kadriorg Palace was being built.
The house is now a museum, and its few rooms are furnished with items from that era. Some of the Tsar's own personal belongings are also on display here. The exhibit include the living room, dining room and bedroom as well as newly renovated rooms in the attic and basement. Peter the Great’s Cottage, also known as “the old palace” (the current Kadriorg Palace being “the new palace”), has a long and fascinating history. Alexander I and several tsars' courtiers have also frequented the cottage.
While in thea Kadriorg area pay a visit to next door Kumu Art Museum, Kadriorg Palace or walk in the Japanese garden.
Entrance with Tallinn Card is free.
