Kadriorg

In 1714 Peter The Great visited Tallinn and, being impressed by what is now the Kadriorg area, decided to build a summer palace and seaside resort there. The palace was not finished at the time of his death and was never used again by the Russian royal family after a fire in 1750. However the area near the palace and park became popular as a residential area for the wealthy.
