Travel info

Tartu is situated in southern Estonia and connects to the world through recently reopened Tartu Airport and Lennart Meri Airport in Tallinn.

The distance between Tartu Airport and the city center is about 10 kilometers.

The distance between Tallinn, Estonia's capital, and Tartu is approximately 200 kilometers, or about 2,5 hours by express coach or car. Express coaches depart every hour and are the preferred method of transport (timetable).

Tartu Airport has connections to Riga and Tallinn.

Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport has direct air links with most Scandinavian (and some other European) capitals via frequent direct flights (timetables).

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.

Apart from that, Estonia has bus links with major cities in Germany, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic countries. Due to the relatively short distances, coach trips from Riga and St. Petersburg are a good alternative to air travel. Both cities have direct connections to Tartu.
