Tallinn, hovedstad i Estland, regnes som en av Europas beste byer når det gjelder wifi-dekning.

EU-kommisjonens president Jean-Claude Juncker fra Luxembourg vil ha raskere internett og mener at det bør bli gratis i alle hovedsteder i de per idag 28 EU-landene innen 2020, skriver NRK.

– Digitaliseringen skal komme alle til gode, uansett hvor man bor og hvor mye man tjener, sa Juncker i sin tale til Europa-parlamentet i Strasbourg i Frankrike, om Unionens tilstand.

Blant de europeiske byene med høy wifi-dekning, og i noen tilfeller har gratis wifi, er Tallinn, Paris, Geneve, Barcelona, Madrid og Wien.

ESTONIA LOSING INCOMING TOURISM FROM NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES

Tallinn

Hotels in Tallinn and elsewhere in Estonia are facing tough times as in addition to the government plan to increase VAT rate they are also accommodating fewer and fewer Russian and Finnish tourists, the two main tourist groups visiting Estonia, www.balticbusinessnews.com reports.

Statistics Estonia reported yesterday that the number of Russian tourists staying in hotels is down more than 40 percent in a year and also the number of Finnish tourists accommodated in Estonia is decreasing.

“The loss of Finns is the biggest blow to Tallinn hotels because they are such an important customer group,” says Ain Käpp, CEO of Tallinn Hotels, commenting the fact that in March, 11 percent fewer Finns stayed in hotels in Tallinn than a year earlier.

“The situation last year was notably better because Finns helped to offset the impact of the decrease in incoming tourism from Russia,” he added.

Käpp admitted that since it takes time under the number of Finnish tourists staying in Tallinn hotels will start increasing, hotels need to downsize and lay off employees.

“We are planning to stay in business, but if the share of Finns would fall by twenty percent, it would create a most difficult situation because hotels are operating with very low profit margins,” says Käpp who manages Palace, Savoy Boutique and Bern.

“Finnish travel agencies and tour operators say that their revenues are falling and they are very worried,” said Käpp, adding that the situation will not improve before the Finnish economy picks up again.

Although summer is traditionally a high tourist season in Estonia, Käpp says that he doubts whether it would solve problems facing accommodation establishments.

“Demand will be higher in the summer, but it will not offset the overall decrease in business volumes in rest of the year,” he said, adding that also the number of days that tourists spend in Estonia has been decreasing.

ESTONIA, RUSSIA CUT TRAIN LINKS AMID SANCTIONS, LACK OF DEMAND

Train service between the capitals of Russia and Estonia has been suspended due to declining demand.

Estonian public broadcaster ERR said it’s the first time in 65 years that Estonia has no passenger rail connections with Russia, according to Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty – www.rferl.org

Estonian railway company GoRail spokeswoman Kersti Gorstov said the last overnight train from Moscow arrived at Tallinn’s main train station on May 19.

European Union sanctions against Russia have led to a sharp reduction in the number of Russians visiting Estonia, making the Moscow-Tallinn route unprofitable.

GoRail, which had operated the Tallinn-Moscow route continuously since 1998, also dropped service to St. Petersburg earlier this month.
