Summer of news

After finalizing the summer holidays one has to admit in the hindsight, that this time the key word of what is going on seems to be ... new.

There is a new fast ferry FSTR by Viking Line connecting Tallinn with Helsinki, and faster it is - the crossing takes 1 h 45 minutes.

The cruise terminal at Tallinn Harbour got a new entrance area - proper gates with a checkpoint, paving and also parking facilities - actually, the whole area looks now different after the completion of the works in question.

The Tallinn Airport opened the extension of the passenger terminal with the new security check area (double the size now) and re-arranged transport access. The latter will be completed by a direct tram connection with the city to be launched in August.

And the last but not the least - due to the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU and its headquarters being located at the Creative Hub/Kultuurikatel - that is just next to the harbour - one has to get used to the traffic being now and then either re-arranged or restricted, especially when having something to do with the Terminals A or B, cruise area or Linnahalli Terminal.

But hey - thanks to the EU Presidency you get to play around with the self-driving (driverless) passenger vans connecting for free Viru Square and the Creative Hub.
