Kadriorg Park, a heavily wooded area 2km east of the Old Town along Narva mnt., was laid out according to the instructions of Russian tsar Peter the Great. The main entrance to the park is at the junction of Weizenbergi tänav and J. Poska. Weizenbergi cuts through the park, running straight past Kadriorg Palace, a Baroque residence designed by the Italian architect Niccolò Michetti, which Peter had built for his wife Catherine. The palace houses the Kadriorg Art Museum, with a fine collection of Dutch and Russian paintings. A short walk up Weizenbergi, the immense, futuristic-looking Kumu is a must-see for anyone interested in Estonian art through the ages.
