"Estonian History Museum"

Nestled along the shores of the pristine blue Tallinn Bay, the beguiling Maarjamäe Palace is awash in finer nuances of Pseudo-Gothic architecture. Deftly fashioned from limestone, this palace was built in 1874 as a summer abode under the orders of Count Anatoli Orlov-Davydov. Bearing a moving, long-standing history, the palace was later besieged by the Soviet forces in 1940. One of the major highlights of the palace is its lofty tower, which, with its sturdy and imposing scale, watches over the sprawling Pirita Promenade and the sparkling waters of the Baltic Sea. After having undergone remodifications, the palace was established as an arm of the Estonian History Museum in 1987. Today, the museum is home to many exhibits and expositions which chronicle hundreds of layers of history, from the Soviet occupation and the Estonian War of Independence, to the history behind the country’s first republic and modern-day Estonia, hence serving as strong reference points between the nation’s glorious past and its hopeful present. Also located on the castle grounds is a cafe, a play area for kids and the picturesque Maarjamäe Palace Park.
