St. Pete-Tallinn Rail Restored

Direct train service between Tallinn and St. Petersburg resumed Sunday after an almost four-year break, the Go Rail transport company said in a statement.

Go Rail's Tallinn-St. Petersburg train will make the seven-hour trip daily in each direction, departing at 7:03 a.m. from Tallinn and 7:32 p.m. from St. Petersburg. The ticket costs 25 euros ($31).

The Tallinn-St. Petersburg link was suspended over a lack of profitability in 2008. Russian Railways offers direct service to Tallinn from Moscow.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
