Description

Learn about Estonia’s rich artistic heritage on this 2.5-hour art tour of Tallinn. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, immerse yourself in the verdant splendor of both Kadriorg Park and Kumu, home to an impressive collection of art. Admire arrays of Estonian and international art, and gain a fascinating insight into the historical and cultural context of significant works.

Meet your guide at Sokos Hotel Viru, centrally located in Tallinn, at 10:30am and board a comfortable coach for the short drive to Kadriorg Park, home to Kadriorg Palace.

The 290-year-old park is considered by many to be the crown jewel of Tallinn. It offers unparalleled views of the palace, an impressive building originally built as a summer home for Russian royalty. In 1920 it became the principal site of the Art Museum of Estonia but was later converted into the president of Estonia’s home, although it still exists as a branch of the art museum, housing impressive foreign works of art by artists such as Johannes Mikkel. Walk around the peaceful park as your guide shares interesting facts about the history of Kadriorg. 

Next, head to Kumu, the Art Museum of Estonia’s main branch and one of the largest art museums in northern Europe. In contrast to the palace’s historical architecture, Kumu is a sleek, modern building which opened in 2006 and was awarded European Museum of the Year in 2008. Explore the museum's vast collection with your guide, including Estonian art dating back to the 18th century. At the end of your tour, the coach will return you to the original departure point.
