Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is one of the most popular tourist destinations and cruise stops in the Baltic Sea. Located on Estonia´s northern coast on the Gulf of Finland, only 80km south of Helsinki, Tallinn has been a meeting point from its very early days.

A taxi stand can be found just outside the arrivals hall. The fare from the airport to the conference venue is about €7 to €10.
