It sounds great. Estonia is on my list of places to  see. Thanks for giving me more incentive to go.

Nicholas II definately visited Kadriorg, but I think his visits were rare and he probably stayed for just a few days.

There's another link, if you're interested:

Nicolas visited Revely (Tallinn now) several times to check and to greet russian fleet.
Usually, he came by the yacht and he has to stay their
but with no doubt various ceremonies should take place in the palace.
Personally, I love Estonia very much

First palace in Kadriorg is still existing. Peter I bought 4 manors near Reval and started to create summerplace for Catherine I (Jekaterina I). Peter lived in one manorhouse there far side of park and its called Drentelns manorhouse.

This building is wery beautiful and furniture belonged to Peter I.

I removed my posts about Reval and Kadriog as my English translations of Estonian guidebooks seem to have had an error which Kraf has corrected. Perhaps he can post on the Alexander Nevky Cathedral, the Kadriog Palace complex in total, and other interesting Estonian sites of Imperial Russian History. He has access to Estonian language sources, where I have had to rely on English translations both in books and in conversations.

I can understand your wish to have a native speaker of Estonian do the posting. It is an extremely difficult language to learn. I have some history books in Estonian and rarely do I attempt to translate any part of them into them into English, I mainly just look at the illustrations.

When I was living in Estonia, I asked about attending a school to learn the language properly. My friend said that by the time I could learn to speak English like a small child, all the small children in Estonia would be speaking English fluently.

Do not feel bad about your translation errors. That you went to the effort to translate Estonian in the first place speaks very highly of you.

By the way, I think that I already posted on the Aleksander Nevsky Cathedral in another thread.

David

Below is my post of 6 June 2005:

I recall a marble plaque just inside the main doors of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Tallinn that commemorates a visit to the cathedral by Emperor Nicholas II. The cathedral has a website but the Imperial visit is not mentioned, see: http://www.orthodox.ee/indexeng.php?d=parishes/aleks_e

A beautiful building, well worth the visit.

Yes, David, you did post regarding the Alexander Nevsky and I posted additional information in response. I deleted my post on that thread for the same reason as I deleted the Reval-related posts here.

Your post here is very kind and I do appreciate it. My Estonian mother-in-law was most hopeful that I would become an Estonian language speaker when I married my native Estonian husband. As you say, it is a very difficult language.

I was very happy to post about things that were dear to me in Estonia, and fancied myself a bit of a subject matter expert. Now I am simply an embarrassed former subject matter expert when it comes to the building plan of the Kadriog Park complex based on my English language sources.

Did you get to Palmse? It is a really wonderful restored manor east of Tallinn. My husband's cousin, an architect, worked on the restoration for many years. It was his pride and joy, and we were lucky enough to be taken on a personal tour by him through that lovely place in 1998.
