Kadriorg Palace and Bridgettine convent sightseeing tour
One of the top attractions in Tallinn is a highly picturesque manor built for Katherine (Ekaterina), the wife of the Russian Czar Peter the Great at the beginning of the 18th century. Now the rich Baroque-decorated mansion houses the Museum of Foreign Arts The manor is surrounded by a regular garden which is nice and attractive during all seasons of the year. Depending on the tour program, we can arrange a visit to Kadriorg, including the Museum entrance, or only walking in the park. Bridgettine Convent in Pirita was built at the beginning of the 15th century and was open for 150 years. It was the largest nunnery in Old Livonia. Nuns returned to Pirita in 1994. In 2001, the modern architecture sanctuary was consecrated. Tourists can now see the old Convent church‘s ruins and visit the contemporary Convent.
