Hi everyone,

My friend and I would like to go to a festival in Tallinn, Estonia on July 15th, and we're trying to get there from Romania. As plane tickets are rather expensive, we have to travel either by train or coach, but i find it hard getting any information on train routes :(
So my question is, how could we get from romania to estonia by train or coach?

I would appreciate any help you guys can give me with this issue, as i have been searching for hours and haven't come across any useful piece of information.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,
Madeline & Andreea

Here's a suggestion: bus/train from Romania to Budapest (€10-€40 depending on where exactly in Romania you start from), bus Budapest-Krakow (around €20, check http://www.eurolinespolska.pl/index.php?lang=en ), train/bus Krakow-Warsaw (from about €15), bus Warsaw-Tallin (from ~€35, multiple changes along the way, see http://www.eurolines.ee/en ).

I suggest you play around with www.skyscanner.net and www.whichbudget.com

Tallin is on the network of some budget airlines, you should be able to get a cheap flight from Hungary or Romania to Frankfurt/Hahn, London or Berlin and then fly from there to Tallin.

If you are lucky it is cheaper and faster than all those buses and trains.

I would suggest Tarom from Otopeni to Riga. The return flight is (inc. tax) €125. Then a coach from Riga to Tallin (approx €48 return), which takes about 6 hours.
Doing train, bus etc., will take forever and by the time you've spent out on food, drink etc., it won't work out much different.
