There is no direct train from Warsaw to Riga or Tallinn. It is possible to do the journey by train, but it's cumbersome. It takes two days and you would be traveling on local trains, mainly soviet-style Elektrichkas. You have to travel from Warsaw to Vilnius and then from Vilnius to Riga, and finally from Riga to Tallinn. Note that this route does not ...

There are tunnels. While some are the casemates or part of the old fortress, many others have been found, dating back centuries. http://www.inyourpocket.com/estonia/tallinn/Tunnels-under-Tallinn_70029f?more=1 has a good summary of what exists, what's theoretically accessible, and what's actually accessible to the public.

The trip is approximately 2900 km. So it is on average 207 km per day. That is not too much for a roadtrip with a lot of relaxing. And to do even more relaxing you can spend some days at the same location and then travel for half a day until you stay some days in the next city. I did a lot of roadtrips in Europe and all of them were very relaxing even so we ...

The festival grounds (Lauluväljak) is a bit out of the way but not very far (a little over 3km east of the old city). There are several bus lines going past the festival grounds, including 1A, 8 and 34A from Virus Keskus and line 5 which goes through the old city, each with 2 to 4 buses per hour on Sunday. Some lines go to the Oru stop on the other side of ...

I believe that it is the Independence Victory Column. It was built to celebrate the successful war(s) of independence of the Baltic states and Poland in 1918-1920. Or maybe you mean the Maarjamaae War Monument on Pirita Beach. This was a World War II memorial.

Tallinn. Brasov was nice and in the mountains and has wildlife (bears) to see occasionally, but there's not that much there. The usual town sites. It didn't feel like a medieval city. Tallinn on the other hand has arguably Europe's best preserved medieval city. The old town still has most of its walls around, and there are basically no new buildings ...

According to the Tallinn route planner, bus line 2 runs between Harbour terminals A and D (Reisisadam) and Mõigu, via the bus station (Autobussijaam) and the airport (Lennujaam). There are roughly 2 buses per hour on weekdays, 3 on weekends. The trip takes roughly 10 minutes between terminal D and the bus station, 3 minutes between terminals A and D, and ...

From airport there is the line number 2, bus stop A.Laikmaa, the ticket price is 1.60 €, according to this page

There are multiple options available without the long layover from SkyScanner and Rome2Rio and those with long layovers in Moscow or Munich. But I am sure that you can find something with a stopovers at other places St. Petersburg, Russia and then just take a train from there.

The trains do run from Tallinn and Riga to Warsaw same as the other way around. The easiest way to find them would be actually via Polish Rail site and schedule, which will allow you to search destinations in either direction and will provide you the changes needed to complete your journey. Strangely enough (or may be not) the number of changes is actually ...

One afternoon is sufficient to see most, if not all, of the Old Town, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. As an alternative, in case of bad weather, or as a complement, in case you are rushing too fast through the Old Town, you can consider a visit to the Museum of Occupations. Interesting, instructive and easy to reach: ...

Indeed Estonia has very few directs flights from anywhere and the situation has gone worse over the last couple of years. But there are a few alternatives which can make everything more fun, if you have time to travel. Fly to Riga, enjoy this great city for a day or two, take a bus to Tallinn. The trip takes about 4 hours and costs between 13 and 30€, see ...

Within Viru Square, I would arrange to meet at the (Viru) Gate, which is the entrance to the Old Town.

All that I remember is that the main bus station (Where I arrived) had free wifi, so I checked google maps to the old district, decided it was too far (1 hour) to walk - was meeting people, so I caught a cab. The trick was that he couldn't actually drive into the old town, so had to drop me off at the edge. As you've probably found, it's about a 30 min ...

Tallinn, if enjoyed slowly allows you to immerse in its energy, which is quite 'high' compared to the more polished neighbours across the Baltic owing to the low spirit rates. Hence you shall find lots of Finns and some russians hanging out regularly in Tallinn thronging its many pubs and night clubs, partying all night, now that the sun almost never sets. ...
