Getting There in EstoniaEdit This
Getting to and from Estonia
Estonia is well served by ferry, with connections from Tallinn to for example Helsinki, Stockholm, St Petersburg and Rostock. Ferry operators include Tallink ( www.tallink.ee), Silja Line ( www.silja.com) and Viking Line ( www.vikingline.ee).
Rail connections with other countries are limited, there is however a daily overnight connection with Moscow. Check out www.evrekspress.ee (not in English) or www.seat61.com (in English) for more details.
Due to the lack of rail services, buses are the way to go in the Baltics. Connections from Tallinn to main destinations in neighbouring countries, and even as far as Western and Southern Europe are available. More information can be found on www.eurolines.ee and www.ecolines.ee.
