TALLINN, May 27 (Itar-Tass) — Estonia resumes rail traffic between Tallinn and St. Petersburg on Sunday, reported the Estonian rail company GoRail.
”Petersburg is a major city that has become an important centre of economic and cultural life,” noted company head Alar Pinsel. “Therefore, we decided now, four years later, to resume rail traffic to serve passengers both from Estonia and Russia.”
The train on the Tallinn-Petersburg route will shuttle in both directions once a day. The travel will take around seven hours.
The passenger rail traffic between St. Petersburg and Tallinn was stopped in September 2008, and it was possible to reach Estonia from Russia by rail with the Moscow-Tallinn train.
