Getting There

Estonia - Getting There

Traveling to Estonia is possible via air, sea, and land.

Estonia's major airport is in the capital city, Tallinn. Several European carriers fly directly to Tallinn: Aero Airlines, Air Baltic, Airet, Cza Czech Airlines, Estonia Air, Finnair, Lithuanian Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, and SAS. Updated timetables and information available at www.tallinn-airport.ee

Between Helsinki and Tallinn, a hydrofoil-line service runs up to thirty times a day during the summer months. Ferry lines run to Tallinn from Helsinki and Stockholm; the carriers are Eckero Line, Lindaline, Nordic Jet Line, SeaWind Line.

Most major European cities have routes to Tallinn by coach and rail. The most direct routes are from Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia; more information is available at the Euroline (www.eurolines.ee) and the TAK Reisid (www.takreisid.ee) websites. The Moscow Express train offers the most frequent connection to Tallinn by rail.

Domestic travel is easy. Estonia's network of bus services connects all of the major towns. There are express and local buses running between all the major towns. The Estonian highway network is also developing. The three basic routes are Via Baltic, Via Estonia, and Via Hansa. The Via Baltic runs southwest from Tallinn through Pärnu and Riga. Via Estonia goes southeast from Tallinn through Pôltsamaa, Tartu, Otepaa and Valga, to Latvia; and the least developed of the three, Via Hansa, runs almost parallel to the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland to Narva. The highway runs to St. Petersburg in Russia.
