Shore Excursion Tallinn: itinerary

For those Tallin shore excursions that include a trip to Kadriog (see list on left), we’ll reach Kadriog Palace in just 10 minutes. The palace, originally an imperial summer residence, is considered the grandest example of palace and park design in Estonian architectural history.

Set in immaculately kept gardens the palace is almost painting-like in it’s splendor. Completed in 1725, it was designed to resemble the Italian palaces of the time and was originally built for Catherine I of Russia.

Within the grounds is the Kumu which displays Estonian artwork from the 18th century to the present day. A large and innovative art museum, it’s considered a modern architectural masterpiece. Its geometric design is set into the surrounding limestone, and provides great contrast to the nearby Kadriog Palace.

The other part of the Tallinn shore excursion takes place in the historic district. The Old Town of Talinn is one of the best-preserved and most-intact medieval cities in Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Toompea Hill, the upper part of the old town, today is the home of the Estonian government and parliament. In mythology Toompea is the hill built over the grave of Kalev, father of King Kalevipoeg in the Estonian national epic poem.

Situated on the hill is St. Mary’s Cathedral, or Dome Church, the oldest church in mainland Estonia. This brilliant white building is beautiful to behold and also is the burial place of a number of important figures.

Religious buildings are everywhere in Tallin – our tour visits the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Church of the Holy Spirit and St. Nicholas’ Church. Then after a little free time to explore, our Tallinn shore excursion will depart back to port for boarding.
