For sea views, head to the Pirita promenade
and take in the spectacular views of Tallinn's rocky shoreline, with the Old Town cityscape in the distance. Stroll, hand in hand, in the nearby Kadriorg Park
where the beautiful Swan Pond and Japanese Garden
are a must. Visit the Kadriorg Palace
for a touch of imperial romance: the pink baroque castle standing in the middle of the park was Peter the Great's gift to his wife, Catherine I.
In addition to the majestic park and seaside promenade, the area is dotted with ornate wooden villas and residencies from the past centuries, so it is a perfect destination location for long walks in the fresh air. You will also find many little museums offering glimpses to the private lives of Estonian writers, theatre personalities, and even of the Russian czar
A bit further, you will find the Pirita beach
, Tallinn Botanic Garden
, and the TV Tower
- a great destination for relaxation. During summertime, the garden is a lovely spot for picnics or admiring the colourful rose garden. The tower, in addition to amazing views, offers a chance to spice up your romance with some adrenaline: you can walk on the edge of the tower at the height of 175 metres (574 ft).
