St Petersburg Tallinn Ferry reviews

  • "Could do with more information on the port"

    The ship itself was nice, but getting to it was a nightmare. The ticket did not provide any information on the port the ship left from. So I googled things and it told me a port. I arrived at the port and it looked like exactly the right spot. It even had checkin desks with information about the ferry and opening times that match the departure. However, everything was closed. There was only Russian security there, and communication was hard. After about an hour I discovered the ferry was leaving from another port, and there was a white bus to get there. The bus never came and security got concerned and told me to catch a taxi. However, no one would tell me where too. By this time there were about 4 groups of people stuck. No taxis to catch, and still no one telling us where we need to be. Eventually a group was spotted getting into a taxi and someone luckily took a photo of the name of the correct port. We got a taxi and made it to the ferry at the last minute. This would have all been avoided if the ticket said where to go, or the official website said the correct port, or the identified port had a sign to tell people they are in the wrong place and how to get to the right place. The ferry office did not understand my printed out ticket. But luckily they confirmed my booking via my passport. The ferry was nice.

St Petersburg Guide

Located on the banks of the River Neva, St Petersburg is Russia's second largest city and lies at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea coast. The city's name was changed to Petrograd in 1924 but was later changed back to St Petersburg in 1991. Widely regarded as Russia's cultural hub it is probably the most western of all Russia's cities. St Petersburg's historic centre and related collection of monuments have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A popular tourist attraction in the city is The Hermitage, which is one of the largest art museums in the world. Located in the city are a large number of foreign embassies, international corporations, banks and other businesses. Unlike in Moscow, Saint Petersburg's historic architecture of the city centre, mostly consisting of Baroque and neoclassical buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries, has been largely preserved.

The city is served by passenger and cargo seaports in the Neva Bay of the Gulf of Finland, the river port higher up the Neva and tens of smaller passenger ports on both banks of the Neva River. It is a terminus of both the Volga-Baltic and White Sea-Baltic waterways.

Tallinn Guide

The city of Tallinn is the largest city in Estonia, and its capital, and is a major hub for industry and regional politics. Visitors to the city will love indulging in the city's cultural offerings and visiting the many attractions on offer. Founded in the early part of the 13th century, Tallinn lies next to the Gulf of Finland and is home to an important sea port. Many aspects of the city are medieval, especially around the heritage listed Old Town area, with its maze of cobblestone alleys, many church spires and well preserved fortresses and turrets. The Toompea area of the city is where visitors will find many of the city's most unusual landmarks which includes Toompea Castle and the lovely hilltop Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which is an important Orthodox building. Another popular attraction in Tallinn is the imposing 13th century Town Hall which overlooks Raekoja Plats and has a tall spire that is topped with an iconic bronze statue of a young boy which guards the city and is known as Old Thomas.
