Tallinn University is located at the heart of Tallinn, next to the historically rich Kadriorg district, wonderful Tallinn Old Town, and the Tallinn bay. As such, the university is surrounded by picturesque locations that will be a wonder to explore. We recommend a long walk in the Kadriorg park or by the Reidi tee promenade by the Baltic sea.
Tallinn University itself is located on Narva road and the university campus consists of 6 buildings that are all interconnected to each other. The university buildings are an academic mixture of modern and historic, offering a unique atmosphere to all those who visit the campus. Furthermore, the campus is also accessible to wheelchair users. The university campus is accessible via car, bicycle, electric scooter, public transport, or even by foot. Fun fact: Tallinn University is the only Estonian university that is accessible via tram which is the greenest option in public transportation. For more information on where to park your car or your bike, please visit the university website.
flight There is good air connection between Estonia and other European countries. The only international airport in Estonia is called the Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport (TLL) and it is situated in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. In 2018, it was named one of the best small airports in Europe. The airport is modern and convenient, offering a warm welcome to all visitors. For further information on the airport, please visit their website.
sailing As Estonia is located by the Baltic sea, it is also possible to reach Tallinn by ferry from Helsinki and Stockholm. The Old City Harbour is situated right in the city centre, not too far from Tallinn University. In the Springtime, it is especially enjoyable to take a stroll around the shore. For further information, please see their website, under the category of Old City Harbour.

As Estonia is a fast-developing country both in terms of digitalisation and sustainability, electric scoorters have become a popular way of getting from point A to point B among young people. Electric scooters are a great alternative to car rides as they use significantly less energy than their four-wheeled counterparts. Moreover, taking advantage of the public-use scooters gives you a wonderful opportunity to truly enjoy the city and its atmosphere.
In Estonia, there are two popular companies that offer electric scooters that are available for public use. Firstly, taxi app Bolt is also known for their high-end electric scooters that are fast and comfortable. Their scooters can be found anywhere all over Tallinn. Their service is easy to use via Bolt app that allows users to lock and unlock different scooters. On average, the fee is 0.20€/per minute.
