How to get to Pärnu?
Arriving by ship.
Most ferries and catamarans arrive at the Passenger Port (reisisadam), terminals
A, B, D and C. Left Luggage and a helpful tourist information booth can be found in the
main hall of terminals. Exchange offices are plentiful but not always economical. ATMs are
just as easy to find.
Getting to bus station:
A taxi from the Passanger Port should cost roughly 150 - 200 EEK .
Arriving by plane.
Tallinns airport may be a super-modern affair, but its so small
youre never in danger of getting lost. ATMs and currency exchange are located in the
centre of the hall, and car rental offices are downstairs.
Getting to bus station
A taxi from the airport should cover the short ride to town for 100 EEK (6,5 EUR).
Getting to Pärnu by bus.
Bus Station (Tallinna Bussiterminal or Bussijaam).
Tallinn's small bus station is still a depressing Soviet-era relic, but improvements are
being made and services are fairly efficient. Tickets are available inside the station or
from the driver. (Let ticket-holders get on the bus first.) On Fridays and Sundays buses
to popular weekend destinations, like Pärnu tend to fill up quickly, so buying your
ticket earlier from station or in the day will guarantee a spot.
All Pärnu-bound busses leave from platform 13 or 10, and generally costs 110 EEK
( 7,10 EUR).
Arriving to Pärnu.
More than 20 express buses leave Tallinn for Pärnu daily between 06:25

located in the centre of town, at the corner of Pikk and Ringi streets; the station house
is behind the terminal, at Ringi 3.
A taxi from the bus station should cover the short ride to Film Festival office for 40 -
50 EEK. Or you can take 10 minutes walk through Rüütli and Nikolai street. Or, if you
let us know, we can meet you in the bus station in Pärnu.
