Glehn Park

At the end of the 19th century, the landowner Nikolai von Glehn built the magnificent Glehn Castle on a hillside which boasts a beautiful view. Later, he added a beautiful park. Many species of trees and shrubs were planted in the park, and alleys and roads were built. Today, it has become a forest park, where, in addition to the castle and palm house, there are statues of Kalev's Son and a dragon (known as the Crocodile) and an observatory. The park is part of the Mustamäe Landscape Protection Area and is popular among summer and winter health sports enthusiasts.

    We visited Glehn Castle a couple times trying to see the inside and it was closed both times. Though, the surrounding area was beautiful so we had fun anyhow.

  • Fairytale Castle in an enchanted forrest.

    Situated in a forrest in the outskirts of Tallinn, this historical castle is worth a visit on a day out.

    Perdu dans une forêt paisible, pas forcément bien indiqué, très beau d'extérieur, l'intérieur devait être magique. Dommage qu'il n'ait pas été possible de le visiter
