Hey everyone.

In September, I plan to travel from Tallinn to Saint Petersburg. Unfortunately, there is no direct flight between the two cities and I'm leaning against the train because I don't want to arrive in St. Pete's at midnight. That leaves me with the bus.

I'm not thrilled that it's a 6-7 hour trip that will take up a good chunk of the day. I was therefore thinking of stopping off in Narva for a visit, maybe even an overnight. I was curious if anyone would recommend it or if I…

HI - I am going to Tallinn but plan on being there from Sunday-Tuesday.
I read that the big party nights are on the weekend but are there bars/pubs to go to during the week?
Thanks!

Whilst visiting friends in Helsinki in August, we'd like to take the ferry to Tallinn for an overnight stay.
I don't think we need visas for Estonia (with US passports), but am unsure whether to find a place
to stay in the city centre, or outside, closer to the airport or beach? How far is the airport from the
city; any suggestions of a clean but safe and inexpensive place to stay, either a hostel with private room
or low-cost hotel? What about attractions or special sights in or around Tallinn…

Hello:
We'll be in Estonia for 2 weeks in July and we'd like to rent a car. Could anyone recommend a rental enterprise? We're travelling with a 2 year-old kid, so we'd need a child seat, too. Besides, we'd like to rent a car with full coverage insurance.
Thank you!

I am an American citizen going to Estonia. I intend to go to Tallinn by ferry from Helsinki, go to Riga, and fly back to Estonia. Do i need a visa of some kind since I'm going to be twice in Estonia on the same trip?

thanks,

Old towns

Hi

Sorry I haven't done much research as this is a last minute idea. Any suggestions on the best old towns between Vilnius, Riga and Tallin, and how much time to spend in each

Cheers

Hi!

About 2 weeks we will leave for a weekend to Tallinn!
As we have a rental car, I was wondering if somebody could advise on local saunas / bath house around or outside Tallinn? Just the one which it's populair for the locals :-)

BTW: I read a lot about Narva, positive and negative..is the drive from Tallinn worth to get a bit of russian experience?

Thanks for your help!

Hi ladies and gents,

In a few months I will be visiting Eastern Europe and Estonia is part of my trip. After reading the forum how it's hard to talk to Estonians, how I will be avoided, how I can't talk to them randomly and have a nice conversation, It's starting to make me think twice to go there.

I usually don't go to group tourist guide because I feel like I don't get the best feel of the country so I do my research myself and go and "make friends" with the locals but if Estonians are so…
