Kadriorg Palace, Tall Hermann Tower and Tallinn Town Hall

These places are Tallinn attractions.  

Kadriorg Palace

Kadriorg Palace was build 1718 by Peter the Great for Catherine I. It was build after the Great Northern War. At the moment is there Art Museum of Estonia

Designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, the grandiose palace and surrounding manicured gardens are a humbling example of Tsarist extravagance, but just as important a reason to visit is that this is also home to the foreign art collection of the Art Museum of Estonia.
The Kadriorg Art Museum displays hundreds of 16th- to 20th-century paintings by Western and Russian artists, as well as prints, sculptures and other works.
While here, don't miss the decadent, two-storey main hall, with its elaborately painted ceiling and stucco work, or the room used as an office by Estonia's head of state before the nearby Presidential Palace was built.
Surrounding the Palace are several interesting palace side buildings. For example the restored kitchen building is now occupied by a cosy art museum called the Mikkel Museum, and the humble summer estate is the Peter I House Museum. The palace governor’s house (the castellan’s house) is now home to the Kastellaanimaja Gallery and the Eduard Vilde House Museum.

Kadriorg Palace is location in A. Weizenbergi 37, Pirita, Tallinn, Harjumaa, 10127

Tall Hermann Tower

The first part of the tower was built between 1360-1370. On the 16th century, the tower was completed and its height is 45.6 meters.

Long Hermann Tower is location in Lossi plats, Kesklinn, Tallinn, Harjumaa

Tallinn Town Hall

Tallinn Town Hall is one of the most important symbols of the city and a unique architectural monument in Europe. The Town Hall, established in the heart of the city in the 13th century, was completed in its current shape in 1404 and it is the only preserved Gothic style town hall in Northern Europe. The rarest objects of art in the Town Hall include the carved bench backs from the 14th and 15th centuries and 16th century wall paintings in the city government hall. The Town Hall is still an important building for the city government and is used for official receptions and concerts for up to 120 people.
