Arriving in Destination

Most visitors to Estonia arrive in Tallinn, either at the airport or the harbour. Both are close to the centre of town (the ferry terminals are within walking distance); taxis to the centre should cost less than €10 or you can catch a bus for around €2. Crossing from Latvia by car, motorbike or bus is a breeze as both countries are part of the Schengen Area, so there are no border checks. The main border checkpoint from Russia is at Narva. Buses connect Estonia with both countries. Trains from St Petersburg stop in Narva and Tallinn, while trains from Rīga stop in Valga; the stations are near the centre of each city.
