Valga is a town in the southeast of Estonia and just across the border with Latvia. Although not a very attractive, nor popular place to hang around, it serves as an important transport hub if you like to travel by train between both countries.

Getting There

By Train

Estonian Railways provides daily connections to/from Tallinn. The train leaves Tallinn early in the morning, in time to connect with the train to Riga, which leaves around noon. For that train, check the Latvian Passenger Trains website and the excellent 1188.lv website. There are also trains in the morning and late afternoon, in case you don't travel between Tallinn and Riga or other Latvia cities/towns in one go.

Post

Eesti Post is Estonia's national postal service with generally fast and reliable services for sending postcards, parcels and letters. It can take up to 4-5 days to send mail to Western Europe though, longer outside the continent. Domestic services are much faster though. Post offices are generally open from 9:30am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday, and 9:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday, though some variations might be possible depending on the post office. Some larger central ones might be open evenings and on Sundays. There is no need to buy stamps at the post offices though; just get your stamps at some shops or kiosks and drop your mail off in any of the small orange post boxes, which are abundant throughout the country.
