how to travel to Estonia?
best ways are: by bus (from berlin, poland, latvia etc), by ferry (from sweden, finland), by train (from russia) or by plane (from everywhere else)
by bus to Viljandi
there are several bus-connections from different destinations in Europe. just remember that the destinations you have to keep in mind are either Tallinn, Tartu or Pärnu. all these stations have straight and quite frequent bus-connection with Viljandi.
from Tallinn to Viljandi takes about 2,5h. the length of time from Tartu to Viljandi and Pärnu is about 1,5h.
* tickets can also be purchased either from the ticket office or from the driver. online tickets are sold 10-30 days before the departure. schedules: http://www.tpilet.ee/
you can catch the train to Viljandi. the train station is situated very close to Tallinn old town. it takes 2h15min to Viljandi. there is no need for booking tickets before travelling. schedules: http://elron.ee/en/
ferry is the easiest and probably the cheapest way to travel from scandinavia (finland, sweden) to estonia. there are many companies offering you a trip to Tallinn by ferry.
the international airport in Estonia is in Tallinn. since the distance between Tallinn and Viljandi is about the same as between Riga and Viljandi, you might also take the flight to Riga international airport in Latvia and then take a bus from Riga to Viljandi.
if there are more guests arriving to Tallinn airport at the same time we could help you with the transport. it requires a previous agreement.
Viljandi is a small town where walking is the easiest way to move around, with everything within 15 min walking distance. the venues of the festival are connected very close to each other. it's the same with most of the potential accommodation places in Viljandi.
