How to get to Tartu?
The easiest way to reach Tartu is via Tallinn Airport, which can be reached both by a number of direct flights and via connecting flights.

From the airport it is best to travel to Tartu by bus. Buses run between Tallinn and Tartu at least every hour, travel time is about 2.5 hours. In Tallinn, buses stop in front of the airport, and in Tartu the bus station is in the city centre, about 1 km from the conference venue, which is the main building of Tartu University. We recommend purchasing bus tickets online.

There is also a train connection between Tallinn and Tartu. The closest train station to the airport is Ülemiste (about 1 km). Tartu Railway Station is situated about 1.5 km from the city centre and the venue. Train tickets can be purchased in advance online (https://www.elron.ee/en).

Tartu can also be reached from Riga by bus, but the travel time is about 4 hours and buses do not run very often. For additional information see https://luxexpress.eu/en/.
