    Saint Petersburg Transportation

    The St Petersburg Metro system is affordable, convenient and efficient. The cost of the tokens is 28 Roubles and that allows you to travel any distance on the metro system, and change lines as many times as you like, providing that you do not exit. If you exit, and want to re-enter, then you will need to purchase another 28 Rouble token. If you...

    Saint Petersburg Transportation

    The favourite place for me was Siberia in Russia. I travelled there some years ago and made a trans-Siberia train trip from Bejing to St.Petersburg - It includes such beautiful cities as Bejing, Ulan-bator, Irkutsk, Moscow and St.Petersburg. And the nature of Siberia is completely astonishing! I did it thanks to...

    Saint Petersburg Transportation

    St Petersburg's main airport is Pulkovo, whose brand new, all-singing, all-dancing single terminal opened in February 2014, replacing the outdated terminals 1 and 2. The airport is located about 14 miles (23 km) south of the city centre and regular bus services link it to the Metro at Moskovskaya. I've only flown in once, so far, with Air Baltic...

We sailed at 6.30pm but could board about 3 hours in advance - no need, collect your boarding tickets (which act as cabin keys) and meal vouchers, and head back up the quay to a bar to fill in time. Don't worry about filling in the immigration form, as a printed one is given to you on...

    Saint Petersburg Transportation

    Guidebooks tell you that on arrival, you should get your taxi from the official taxi desk in the airport arrival hall, where the agent will give you a paper saying how much it will cost to your destination.

    Saint Petersburg Transportation

    Saint Petersburg is made for walkers. Even in Winter you can find plenty to see. But if you get tired, the Metro subway systems is fun and only about 17 Rubles. The long escalators into these tunnels, which can double as bomb shelters, is quite an experince. Even if you don't take the Metro a trip down and back up the escalator is worth the 17...

    This is something I didn't find out about until my last evening, but definitely something to keep in mind for my next visit.

    Saint Petersburg Transportation

    Whilst St Petersburg seems a city dedicated to the infernal combusting engined machines I can imagine it being a perfectly cycleable city, during the summer at least. Although the main roads are busy 24/7 and there are no cycle paths (at least none I noticed) a bit of careful planning would allow you to get around using the side streets, riverside...

    Taxi from the Theatre We were fortunate enough to grab a cab in front of the Marlinski theater when we exited. He wanted 1000ruples for the ride but I got him down to 500. The hotel told us that we should pay more than that for the ride back, and to clarify it before we got in the car. It worked out well. Great and busy day in St. Petersburg...

  • take a hydrofoil

    This is another great and quick means of transportation: The Hydrofoil. In the times of CCCP I once took this one from the Hermitage to Petrodworez.And in 2014 these hydrofoil-ships are still operated and a perfect way to reach Petrodworets / Peterhof. It takes about 30 minutes to get there, much faster than buses will do !
