Practicalities

There is a separate section about travelling to Estonia on the left.

Transportation has been organised from the VSpa hotel to the main venue of the University of Life Sciences. The conference programme has been set up so that there would be time for getting to know Tartu and enjoying the spa as well. To get to know the public transportation system in Tartu, please click here. For a taxi service, the app Taxify is very popular; we also recommend electrical taxies (call +372 5749 5749 or +372 5685 8954  to order) or the Tartu Taxi company (call +372 730 0200 to order).

Travelling to Tartu from Tallinn: the most convenient would be to take the Lux Express coach from Tallinn. The coaches have free WiFi, hot beverages and an entertainment system on board. The buses leave every hour, the journey lasts for 2.5 hours, but time flies when you are seated in the lounge area. It is possible to apply for a reimbursement of the bus tickets.

Internet: free public Wi-Fi is available in nearly every café, restaurant, hotel and hostel, as well as in open spaces such as city squares and parks.

Currency: The national currency is Euro (1 euro = 100 cents)

VISA: Estonia is a part of the Schengen visa area. Nationals of EU are free to enter Estonia. The required travel document for entry is a national ID card or passport. For more specific information, please contact the nearest Estonian consulate or embassy, or check the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affair's website.

Power supply: The electrical current is 220 volts AC, 50 Hz. European-style 2-pin plugs are in use.
