The train is one of the most interesting means of transport to reach St. Petersburg.
The city has international rail connections with Finland, Germany and all the former republics of the Soviet Union, it is therefore reachable both from within Russia and from across the border.

  • From Helsinki the journey takes just under 4 hours;
  • From Berlin, the connection is always direct, with departure from Hauptbahnhof station and arrival at the St. Petersburg Vitebski railway station. The train from Berlin reaches St. Petersburg through Belarus and it is therefore necessary to request a transit visa for that country, in addition to the one for Russia;
  • From Moscow the city can be reached by the fast Sapsan train (journey time approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes).

St. Petersburg hosts five main railway stations:

  • Vitebski, served by Pushkinskaya underground
  • Moscovskii
  • Baltiskii, also served by connections to the airport
  • Ladozhskii
  • Finliandskii, served by the Ploschad Lenina underground
