St Petersburg Trains - Just Incase

Post by Karolkarol on Tue May 22, 2012 10:52 pm

I know this is only a maybe but there are a good range of trains going from Moscow to St Petersburg taking from 3hrs 45mins to 8hr sleeper trains. The majority of them are not fecking cheap.

Daily Train #028 (recommended for price / quality):
Moscow [21.30] - St. Petersburg [next day 5.28]
Travel time: 8 hours, Price: 100 1st class, 40-60 2nd class, 25 3rd class
Note: one of the few trains, which has 3rd class (platzcart) common carriages.

Daily Train #006 "Nikolaevsky's Express" (recommended for comfort):
Moscow [23.30] - St. Petersburg [next day 8.12]
Travel time: 8 h 42 m, Price: 100 1st class, 50 2nd class
Note: one of the better "firmenny" trains, neat and clean, but not too expensive.

Daily Train #002 "Red Arrow" (recommended for the experience):
Moscow [23.55] - St. Petersburg [next day 7.55]
Travel time: 8 h, Price: 180-200 2nd class, 90-100 1st class.
Note: this is one of the more kitschy trains, so the "comfort" you get in this case is something a Russian railway official would like, rather than how this term is usually understood. Expect red brothel-like curtains, lots of shiny plastic, heaps of tabloids, and bag tea and exorbitant prices.

Daily Train #158 "Sapsan" (recommended for speed):
Moscow [19.00] - St. Petersburg [22.45]
Travel time: 3 h 45 m, Price: 90 2nd class, 170 1st class
Note: This is an expensive train, but the time of departure and arrival is perfect and it only takes 3 h 45 m. There are two more daily (at 6.45 am and 13.00).

Daily Train #30 (recommended: latest departure + lowest price):
Moscow [1.05] - St. Petersburg [09.46]
Travel time: 8 h 41 m, Price: 20 3rd class, 40-50 2nd class, 75-90 1st class
Note: This is a very simple train, no excess, but the price and the convenient time of departure make it our favorite choice.

Daily Train #160 (cheapest day train):
Moscow [16.30] - St. Petersburg [22.00]
Travel time: 5 h 30 m, Price: 50-60 2nd class seats, 80 2nd class compartment, 140 1st class seats
