Rail Baltica is the kind of infrastructure project every continent needs

Governments around the world are investing in public transport to reduce car use and create a greener world. And now Eastern Europe is going all in on the rail infrastructure project Rail Baltica.

Rail Baltica aims to integrate the Baltic states into the European rail network. It is one of Europe’s most substantial investments to improve mobility and travel opportunities, and is the largest infrastructure project in the Baltic region in the last 100 years.

The project involves five countries of the European Union: Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and indirectly Finland. It will connect Helsinki, Tallinn, Pärnu, Riga, Panevežys, Kaunas, Vilnius and Warsaw.

The heart of technology comes to the heart of the Mediterranean

But it is more than the construction of a railway line: it is a platform for connectivity that offers enormous economic growth, cross-border innovation, digitization and community development opportunities.

Rail Baltica brings countries together by building missing cross-border connections. Over a 10-year construction period, the project will span 870 km of rail lines and include the construction of seven intentional passenger stations and three freight stations.
