The tour takes you first to the Song Festival Grounds there will be a short stop to get a closer look at the site which has become a symbol of the national identity and independence of Estonia.
Our choral singing tradition has also been acknowledged by UNESCO as world cultural heritage. To convey the full power of our Song Festivals we will then proceed to KUMU where we can see it all through another cultural medium, film. But KUMU has been included in our tour for its own sake as well, as KUMU is the National Art Museum of Estonia. The present building was completed in 2006 and in 2008 it was awarded the title of the Best Museum of the Year in Europe.
During our visit to KUMU you can make a short stroll through the Estonian art exhibited there (17th-21st century). After that we’ll step outside the museum and find ourselves at Kadriorg Park which is the most outstanding palatial and urban park in Estonia, covering around 70 hectares. We will pass by the President’s Palace as well as the jewel of the park – a magnificent baroque Kadriorg Palace. Price includes bus transportation, museum admission and English-speaking guide.
