Transport to St Petersburg from Tallinn.

by Johnire

Hi.
Does anyone know if there is a ferry between Tallinn and St Petersburg?
If not is there a train or bus service?
Any relevant website addresses would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Both the train and ferry links between Tallinn and St Petersburg weere cancelled some time ago - bus is currently the only option. There are several buses every day. Here's the timetable (in Estonian I'm afraid but easy enough to read and navigate around the website and you'll find some sections are in English)

You can go to Helsinki by ferry and then by train to St Petersburg which, when we went, was said to be more hassle free than the train to St Petersburg from Tallinn which I see from the above post has now been cancelled.

What a shame that the ferry is no more. That would have been nice.

There was no problem entering Russia from Helsinki at that time except for us trying to answer a form written in Russian!

Just allow plenty of time to Helsinki train as taxis were very busy when we arrived.

Take a ferry to Helsinki, has others say then train to St P, A new way for 2010 is a ferry from Helsinki to St Petersburg overnight , twice has long in time than train, but you will sleep. Try st peter line on internet.

There are few ferry lines and many ferries per day to Helsinki. Eckeroline, Silja Line/ Tallink and Linda Line.
From Helsinki to St Petersburg there are 2 daily trains: www.vr.fi
(Huh, I wonder why someone sending you from Tallinn to St Petersburg with the Norwegian railway :)

Re: Transport to St Petersburg from Tallinn.

Because 'someone' was half-asleep at the time, and is obviously suffering the effects of old age. :-(

My fulsome apologies. I know perfectly well where Helsinki is and feel a complete idiot.

Here's the Finnish railway site in English:

Re: Transport to St Petersburg from Tallinn.

by wise23girl

Hi alectrevor . An earlier post said the ferry to St Petersburg had ceased? Which is correct? That is why I suggested Tallinn to Helsinki to St Petersburg as an option to bus...

Re: Transport to St Petersburg from Tallinn.

by leics

There's a new overnight ferry service Helsinki>St P but I don't know if it takes foot passengers.

Re: Transport to St Petersburg from Tallinn.

by Gili_S

That is not exactly a ferry, but a cruise ship which will cost you 3x the train ticket for a start, not including meals and drinks.

Re: Transport to St Petersburg from Tallinn.

by leics

Yes, that was the impression I got.

But as you can do one-way trips I suppose it might fit the bill (as long as it takes foot passengers).

Travel Tips for Tallinn

UNIQUE DOLL SHOP in Tallinn OLD TOWN

by barbara35

The most unique little shop you really MUST visit is the DOLL SHOP in Raekoja plats 18, in the magnificent main square of the OLD TOWN Tallinn. All the toys and beautiful handmade dolls are unique and only found in this one place, made by different estonian artists of all ages and only for this beautiful SHOP! Its is THE favourite and most loved shop among the local people as I heard from all my estonian friends and has been there since Estonia got it's independence in the beginning of the 90's. Many grown-ups, that used to go there as children, go there regulary to have a chat with the shop assistant and see if there are any new dolls... I really recommend it, if you have little children or want to have a special souvenir from Estonia! All the toys are made from natural materials like wood etc. Best, if your family needs a special doll to heritage from mother to daugter : ) Loved it!!!
Barbara, 35

Puhavaimu Church, a bit more

by bugulma

Johann Koell, a pastor at the Church of the Holy Ghost, is considered to be the author of the first Estonian book, a catechism published in 1535. Tower bell, made in 1433, was the oldest in Estonia but in May 2002 was badly damaged in fire. The painted clock on its facade is the oldest public timekeeper in Tallinn. The interior is richly decorated, a good example of wooden sculpture from the Gothic era. The altar, commissioned from Berndt Notke in 1483, is one of the four most precious Medieval works of art in Estonia.

Interesting police transport

by leics

The police (Politsei) had a pretty low profile when I visited.

I saw some police vehicles occasionally, but didn't see any walking police people anywhere (which surprised me rather, especially in the heavily-touristy areas).

But I did see these two, on on a scooter and one on a rather good 4-wheel thingie (I have forgotten what they are called).

I imagine the four-wheel thingie is excellent for making hot pursuits down the winding cobbled alleyways and narrow streets of the Old Town.

Or maybe it's excellent for travelling over boggy bits on the outskirts of the city?

Or maybe it's just jolly good fun to ride? :-)

They seemed to be enjoying their job anyway. Which is always nice to see.

A. Le Coq Arena

by BillNJ

I was told that the A. Le Coq Arena is the home of the Estonian national football team (soccer in the States), but I did not visit there on my trip. They also have concerts there, including Aerosmith in July 2007. Since the arena is named after A. Le Coq beer (my favorite in Tallinn), it must be a great place!
