On 18 December 2014, on the eastern border of the European Union, in Estonia, in the town of Mustvee, on the shores of Lake Peipus, a passenger port was opened.

Prior to that, the town of Mustvee was visited on 3 December 2014, by U.S. Ambassador to Estonia Jeffrey D. Levine (pictured). In addition to visiting the Mustvee passenger port, the U.S. Ambassador and Max Kaur, the Mayor of Mustvee, also reviewed the state of affairs along the eastern border in the Mustvee Border Guard cordon.

“The visit by the U.S. Ambassador was an important event for the town of Mustvee, since the people living along the shores of Lake Peipus are hoping for strong cooperation with the United States of America in order to help improve their quality of life. Mustvee is the starting point of not only Estonia, but also the European Union. The completion of the Mustvee passenger port will significantly alter the status of the town. The capital of Lake Peipus is developing more intensively than at any other point in its 500 year history,” noted the Mayor of Mustvee, Max Kaur.

Construction of the new passenger port in Mustvee, the capital of Lake Peipus, began in 2013. By the end of 2014, a new port building of modern architectural design had been completed, the main wharf had been renovated, and a new boat harbour built. The new pier is 168 metres in length and there is room alongside for landing nearly 30 boats. In the new two-storey port terminal, the Mustvee city government has set aside rooms for the harbour master as well as the Environmental Inspectorate.

Vessel traffic took place at the Mustvee passenger port during the tsarist-era and during the era of the first Republic of Estonia. During the Soviet-era, hydrofoils could also found at Mustvee.
