About Tallinn Ferry
Although the Estonian civilization is very old, the region has seldom existed as an independent state. Throughout Tallinn's tumultuous past,
the city has changed hands many times - from the original Estonians, to the Danes, the Hanseatic League, the Teutonic Knights, the Swedes,
the Russians, and the Germans. A succession of conquerors left their marks on Tallin city; they constructed fortresses, cathedrals, and warehouses
to serve their interests in Estonia. Today visitors can wander through Tallinn, and trace the history of the entire Baltic Sea region.
The Ferry Port of Tallinn is the biggest cargo and passenger port in Estonia. It holds a leading position in the handling of cargo flows between Russia and Western Europe. In 2002 the Port of Tallinn became the leading port in the three Baltic countries in terms of cargo volumes (37,9 million tons). There are frequent cargo ferries to Antwerp, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Kiel and Harwich. Cargo is dominated by oil, oil products and timber, much of it in transit from Russia. Most cargo arrives at Tallinn port via the privatised freight railway EVR. The port of Tallinn served 5,9 million passengers in 2002. A total of 3.566 freighters, 7.090 passenger boats and 165 cruise ships called in the company's ports in 2002.

Tallinn is just 50 miles from Helsinki and ferries regularly plough the route between the two capital cities. As a result Tallinn has become a popular day trip for Finns who find that their money goes considerably further than it does back at home. Daily ferries also depart from Stockholm and there are seasonal services from Rostock and St Petersburg. Tallinn's popularity as a maritime destination is borne out by some impressive statistics. In fact, today the Tallinn port handles more than six million passengers each year; making one of the busiest ports in the Baltic. Besides ferries and cruise ships the port (or more precisely collection of four harbours) also acts as a mooring for private sailing vessels.
