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…
Whilst visiting friends in Helsinki in August, we'd like to take the ferry to Tallinn for an overnight stay.

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?

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!
