Zelenogorsk Transportation

  • by Steve_Z Written Jan 15, 2009

    You can catch the 211 bus out of St Petersburg to Zelenogorsk. It's a long ride- close to 2 hours- but fairly reasonable. I think it was 56 rubles for the trip. The bus can be quite crowded, so be prepared to stand and jostled the whole time.

    Once you get to the end of the line, there are numerous taxis at the station that will take you to the sanatoriums near the Gulf of Finland for 100 rubles. If you speak English, they may charge you more.
