Distances are short in Estonia, also from a logistical point of view. The country's business life is concentrated around the capital of Tallinn, where more than half of the country's GDP is produced. And operating one's business from Tallinn means being within a 30 minute drive from the international airport.
The vicinity of major Northern European cities such as Stockholm, Helsinki and St. Petersburg, means a lot for the internationalization of Estonia, and particularly Tallinn. This can clearly be seen in tourism - seven million passengers travel through Tallinn's seaport every year. The favourable location also helps entering into cross-border business relationships. Estonia is the link between Western and Eastern Europe.
