Pirita Convent Ruins
The idea of founding the monastery belongs to merchants (H. Huxer, G. Kruse, H. Svalbard) of Tallinn of around 1400. In 1407, two monks from Vadstena Abbey arrived in Tallinn to counsel the merchants. The first permit to break dolomite to gather building material for building the complex was acquired in 1417. The convent was constructed under the supervision of the architect Heinrich Svalbard. The main church of the monastery was consecrated on 15 August 1436 by the Bishop of Tallinn Heinrich II. Several of the merchants who had initially been proposed the monastery later became its monks. During its heyday, Pirita Convent became the most significant Catholic monastery in Livonia. The decline of the convent started after the adoption of the Protestant Reformation in Estonia in 1525, although it was allowed to continue to function. During the Livonian War in 1575, Pirita Convent was attacked by Russian troops under the leadership of Ivan the Terrible. They sacked the monastery, looted its riches and burned it down. Pirita Convent was abandoned since then, but local people used adjacent lands as a cemetery.

Japanese Garden in Kadriorg Park
The Japanese garden is based on the philosophy of the cycle of life and the richness of the expression of nature. Flow, reflection, immersion in nature are those actions that characterize a real Japanese garden. The Kadriorg Park Japanese Garden was opened on July 31, 2011. Garden designer Masao Sone, originally from Kyoto, studied garden architecture in Tokyo and from his gardener father. The area of ​the Northeast Pond of the Kadriorg Park with its sunken glint slope, boulder field, large trees, a pond, and a waterfall was an excellent source of inspiration. A garden, like any living organism, develops and changes over time, and again and again, there is a reason to return here!

Kadrioru pargi infopunkt I-Lustla
In I-Lustla, you can get acquainted with the baroque model of Kadriorg Park. There are park booklet leaflets, postcards with historical park plans, letter envelopes, and stamps with the park logo, etc. Various information materials are available free of charge on the park territory. Already in the middle of the 18th century, there are two summer pavilions or chandeliers at the different corners of the park in Kadriorg. Until the end of the century, only the chandelier of the lower garden remained. The original chandelier was a square base plan and a two-tiered roof with a baroque style. Unleavened loungers used walkers on the park and on the beach for rest stops and in case of rainy weather to drink tea. The oldest known sketch of the building dated back to about 1800 and was made by the castle architect Johann David Bantelmann. Already then, the luster was covered with a high-breaking tent, and its facade was decorated with rusted corner patches and a profiled cornice under the roof eaves. Windows and doors were framed by simple plasterwork. The only entrance was on the palace's facade. There were three windows in the opposite facade, There are also three on the side of Weizenberg Street and two on its opposite wall, so there were nine windows in the house. Partitions divided the house into three rooms. There was no heat collector at that time because the funeral was only used as a summer holiday spot after walks in the park and on the beach.

Kadriorg sundial
The Swan Pond is the most famous of the Kadriorg Park ponds. Originally called the Lower Pond, it was featured on the plans of Kadriorg Park as early as 1723. In 1741, an islet with a pavilion and several trees were designed in the middle of the pond. At the beginning Of the 20th century, various buildings were located around the pond. A wooden villa housing the famous café-restaurant Kontsertaed stood at the spot of the current F. R. Kreutzwald statue. A favorite winter pastime for townsfolk was ice-skating on the pond under the streetlights. Renovation of the surroundings of the pool was undertaken in the mid-1930s. The rundown restaurant buildings were demolished and replaced by lawns, flower beds and hedges. It was then, in the 1930s, that the pond came to be called the Swan Pond (as swans made it their summer home). Fountains were erected in the pond, and around, pillared bandstand designed by Villem Seidra was built on the islet. A sundial and flower beds designed after Estonian ethnic patterns were installed on the south bank of the pond in 1937.
