Traveling to Estonia

Taken from Visit Tartu web page.

Tartu is situated in Southern Estonia and connects to the world primarily through Tallinn, the capital city. Most flights to Estonia arrive in and depart from Tallinn. The distance between Tallinn and Tartu is 180 km. It takes approximately two hours to drive from Tallinn to Tartu. Tallinn Airport is located on the edge of that city, on the road to Tartu. If you plan to drive from Tallinn to Tartu, car rental is available at the airport.

From Tallinn to Tartu

Bus travel is the most convenient way to reach Tartu from Tallinn. Each day, more than 30 express buses make the 2.5 hour trip from the capital. Buses leave almost every 30 minutes from 5:45 in the morning (5:45 a.m.) until 23.00 at night (11 p.m.), usually from platform 9. The ride costs the equivalent of €8 to €10. To reach the bus terminal, take a taxi from the Tallinn airport (a short distance) or catch bus No. 2 which stops close to the bus station (the "Autobussijaam" stop). If you arrive in Tallinn by ferry, it takes a bit more time to get to the bus terminal from Tallinn sea port, ( and it is easier to get there by taxi. Tram No. 2 (towards Ülemiste) or bus No. 2 will take you to Tallinn bus terminal (the "Autobussijaam" stop) from the port, but you still have to cross two intersections to reach the bus terminal.

Express trains for Tartu leave from Tallinn train station 2 times a day, and it takes two and half hours to get to Tartu. The train station is situated just outside the Tallinn Old Town and sea port, a taxi or tram No.2 (from the sea port) can take you there ("Balti jaam" stop). Trains are comfortable and some have free WiFi access. The train station in Tartu is located several blocks south of the University.
