Considering various ways to travel from St. Petersburg to Tallinn, you can also opt for boats. Although boats provide a good opportunity to enjoy beautiful views from the water’s edge, their schedule is much more limited than that of trains. Unlike trains that have daily departures, boats operate only twice a week and cover the distance between the cities almost twice as long as trains, sailing approximately 14 hours. In addition, the length of the boat trip and prices vary from season to season, increasing significantly during the winter.
