Photographer's Note

My favorite wooden district in Tallinn - Kadriorg.

Kadriorg is known for the Kadriorg Palace and surrounding park, but it is also a district of charming wooden houses.
Kadriorg has been one of the most prestigious areas of Tallinn through the ages. This picturesque district is in the city center, yet feels secluded as it is surrounded by trees creating a small town feel. The whole area is full of wooden houses from 19th and 20th century.At the beginning of the 19th century, Tallinn was beginning to earn a reputation as a popular resort town, and the seaside Kadriorg district became a go-to place for holidaymakers. Summer villas, swimming lounges, baths, hotels, guesthouses, and restaurants, all handsomely decorated with wooden carvings and turrets, sprung up in Kadriorg.The uniqueness of Kadriorg is its wealth and elegance; it is both a public and intimate cityscape.
