Tallinn Airport (Tallinna Lennujaam) is conveniently located at the edge of town. The city centre is only about 3 km away. A taxi ride from the Airport to the city centre (hotels or conference venue) should cost no more than 10 EUR. You should ask for the approximate price when entering the taxi and make sure the driver uses the taxi meter. It is also possible to take city bus no 2 (direction Reisisadam, bus stop #1, accessible from floor 0 of the airport) which will take you directly to the city centre (the stop is called Laikmaa). The cost is 2.00 EUR (cash only) for a single ride when bought from the driver.
Tallinn is well connected with Helsinki, Finland, via multiple ferries per day (travelling time roughly 2 hours) and with Stockholm, Sweden (departures every evening, traveling time 15 hours). All three Port of Tallinn passenger terminals (A, B, D – each serving different ferry companies) are close to Tallinn Old Town (a 10-20 minute walk) and Tallinn University. Terminal D can be reached on foot within 10 minutes from Tallinn University, other terminals are a 20-minute stroll away. More information can be found here. Bus no 2 departs from the A, B and D terminals to the city centre and airport (direction Mõigu) approximately every 30 minutes from 7AM until midnight. The price from the bus is 2.00 EUR. A taxi from the terminal to the city centre costs about 6-10 EUR.
International bus lines (Lux Express and Ecolines) offer bus connections between Tallinn and many European cities. International (and domestic) bus lines arrive at and depart from Tallinn Central Bus Station.
