Kadrina is located in the crossing point of TallinnSaint Petersburg (Tallinn–Narva) railway, PärnuRakvere road (nr. 5) and the Loobu River. The nearest towns are Rakvere (12 km east) and Tapa (12 km southwest). As of 2011 Census, the settlement's population was 2,269.[1]

The name of Kadrina is derived from the St. Catherine's church and parish which establishment dates back to 1231. Earlier name of the settlement was Tõrvestevere (German: Tristfer).[2]
