How to go from St. Petersburg to Tallinn?

by ohaiyo

Hi Everyone,

I plan to take the train from Helsinki to St. Petersburg and than from there go to Tallinn, Estonia. What is the best way to go to Tallinn from St. Petersburg? Is it by train, bus, or ferry?

The best way to get from st. Petersburg to Tallinn is to take the train to Helsinki, and take a ferry there. If for some reason you must go from st. Petersburg directly to Tallinn you'll have to take a bus:

I've never done that route, but i've found this site www.luxexpress.eu/lang/timetable with several bus options.

I would agree with K V B. It is a pity you cannot rethink the order of travel. And I understand the train that once went from St Petersburg to Tallin no longer runs.

There still is a train between Tallinn and Moscow. Surely it must halt somewhere near St. Petersburg. The night train Helsinki - Moscow halts in St. Petersburg, although they now have high speed trains St. Petersburg - Helsinki.

Tallinn-Moscow train stops in Kingisepp town as a nearest point to StP (110 km approximately). I vote for the BUS. I had experience in 2005, but for Tallinn-StP and the bus seemed to me the most convenient in price and time

Hi!

You can travel between Tallinn and St.Pb by bus or train. I recomend to do stop in Narva or Johvi town in Estonia. Narva is a border city with nice castle, bastions and old churches. Johvi is a capital town in region. Lots of interesting sights are nearby - Toila searesort, Valaste waterfall and amazing limestone shore / cliff, Kuremae nunnery,... they are worth a visit and locate on the way to Tallinn.

Train is not going anymore. You can check the buses on http://ecolines.net/ (I used them a lot, good bus lines with food on board an wi-fi (sometimes)).

Re: How to go from St. Petersburg to Tallinn?

by wise23girl

So what is correct? Does the train still run.

We were there a few years ago and the train was not running at that time.

So I trust the OP can be given an up to date correct answer. You will notice I hedged my reply as I was not sure.

Re: How to go from St. Petersburg to Tallinn?

by IndianPacific

No, the Tallinn - St. Petersburg train doesn't run. And obviously not even the the Tallinn - Moscow train cames near St. Petersburg (unlike the Helsinki - Moscow train).

Re: How to go from St. Petersburg to Tallinn?

by wise23girl

Well that should settle it. Hope the OP finds a way that suits.

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Take a Private Guide to see St. Petersburg

by Emily54

If like us you're not so young anymore, then our tip is to hire a private guide. It may cost a little extra, but we found it well worth the cost. You will avoid the lines to museums, the huge crowds of people coming from cruise ships - and best of all you will be able to go at you own pace. No need to rush to keep up the the group tour guide and others in the group. We used Tatiana from Russian Adventure - www.russianadventure.com and can thoroughly recommend her. Her personal service, kindness and knowledge really made our trip a pleasure. Walking along the Neva embankment in the evening. It was such a beautiful sight.

Russian Museum

by furioso

Often overlooked by visitors in favour of the Hermitage, the extensive Russian Museum is a must for anyone interested in Russian art and culture. It's housed in the former Mikhailovsky palace, which was designed by Carlo Rossi and built in 1819-25 for Grand Duke Mikhail (brother of Tsars Alexander I and Nicholas I) as compensation for not getting a go on the throne. The museum was founded in 1895 under Nicholas II, and opened three years later. The building is most impressively viewed from the back, during a late-night stroll through the pleasant Mikhailovsky Gardens behind it. The illuminated palace by night makes a great spot for romantic holiday snaps.

Peter The Great

by sunshine9689

I just wanted to talk a bit about our great emperor Peter I, since it was his vision and passion that created the city...

Born on the 9th of June 1672 (Gemini like me), the healthiest of other 13 sublings, he was put on the trone at the age of 10, sharing the country with his mentally ill brother Ivan. The real power however belonged to his elder and very smart sister Sofya (25 years old) who was in control of all Russia for 7 years (she was forced to become a nun later and spent the rest of her days in the monastery, died at the early age of 47).
Peter`s childhood was spent outside of Moscow, in the village of Preobrazenskoe. There he absorbed European ideas (mostly in the nearest German-founded village) instead of those antiquated notions of Kremlin. From early on he showed a lot of interest in the military and marine studies and was really good at it!
At the age of 17 Peter got married under the pressure of his mum. It lasted for 9 years and then he sent his unwanted wife to the monastery (yeah, a good way to get rid of people) and got re-married to his German lover.
In the 90s Peter started thinking about getting some sea exits for his country cause oddly enough Russian had none at that time. He succeeded 25 years later when defeating Sweden.

In 1703 Peter founded his beloved StP and in 1712 the city was called the capital of Russia.
He died at the age of 53 after impulsively jumping in cold waters of Finnish Gulf (to save passengers from a shipwreck) and catching a cold later, in 1725.

Peter was an extraodinary man: knew dozens of crafts and subjects (like navigation, blacksmith`s, carpenter`s, ship building, etc); could just eat bread and onion for dinner; was extremly strong even though he did not look like much (I mean he was tall, yes, but really thin, not mascular at all); loved teeth extraction (you were better off to keep you mouth shut around him and not complain about having a toothache, cause he would immediately come and pull that sucker out).

Hungry Mosquitoes

by scubaphoto

Take note if you are like me and don’t enjoy mosquitoes feeding on you whilst you sleep be aware that they are prevalent in St Petersburg, certainly in September and October when I visited. I would like to think that I was personally responsible for keeping the city mosquitoes population under control during my time here.

If you would like a peaceful sleep take along a net or some repellant.

Liteyny Prospekt

by bugulma

Nevsky Prospekt is crossing by Liteyny Prospekt, in the area closer to Moscow Railway Station Square. I recommend you turn to the right to the prospekt on the crossing (if you go towards to Hermitage), then you can enjoy several beatiful building facades like you see on the picture.
