Finland, Estonia, St Petersburg - Doable?

Jump to last reply

OK, so I have finally decided that I want to go to Estonia next year. I will be 62 at the time of travel and will be traveling alone.

Looking at a map, I decided to fly into Helsinki, spend a couple of days, take the ferry to Tallinn, rent a place for a week, and do some day trips within Estonia and then go to St. Petersburg by train and fly home from there. I read a post elsewhere though saying that it is better to travel by train from Helsinki to St. Petersburg. What do you think?

I have only just begun to gather information, and I have found in the past that there is a wealth of information to be found in these forums. What is the best time of year to go? As an American, will I need visas for all three countries? Is safety a concern for a woman traveling solo in any of these countries?

Any input would be much appreciated!
