The campus city of Tartu is situated in the southern
part of Estonia and connects to the world primarily through
Tallinn, Estonia's capital city. The distance between the
two is approximately 200 kilometers, or 2.5 hours by express
Tallinn has direct airlinks to all Baltic countries.
It is also possible to fly in direct from Frankfurt, Copenhagen,
Stockholm, Helsinki, Riga, Vilnius and St. Petersburg.
In planning your trip, consulting flight schedules is reccomended,
the direct connection only operates on specific weekdays.
On other days, it is possible to travel by alternative routes
connecting through Copenhagen, Stockholm or Helsinki.
From Stockholm and Helsinki, there is also a
ferry connection to Tallinn. It is especially frequent from
Helsinki, hence planning your route through there will not
add much to the total duration of your trip.
There are coach lines to Estonia from Frankfurt,
Vilnius, Riga and St. Petersburg. Due to the relatively short
distance, coahc trips from Riga and St. Petersburg are a good
alternative to air travel. Both cities have direct connections
