Very convenient way to travel from center to center. Easy access and comfortable wagons. Restaurant also if needed some small to eat. Or then travel at 1st class and get served at your seat. You may also pre-order meal. Internet exists at train but fails sometimes. Giver you possibility to work while traveling.

Travelling between Moscow and SPB by plane just makes no sence. Sapsan will quickly transfer you from city center to city center with comfort and minimum bureaucracy/security checks.

We had taken a river cruise for 8 days from Moscow to St. Petersburg, stayed one day there and then hopped on the Sapsan Bullet train (bought the tickets via internet prior to traveling) to return in a mere 4 hours! Amazingly fast!

Easy online purchase when booking from Moscow to St.Petes. We booked 1st glass which was fast, clean, convenient and on time. You really can't ask for more.

Enjoyed our journey from Moscow to St Petersberg. Train was clean, warm and comfortable. Had to walk to buffet car for a glass of wine although there was a trolley service for soft drinks

Comfortable. Fast. Good food. I took the Sapsan to St. Pete's for a 24 trip. Two of my colleagues flew. I beat them there!!! The only... More

Yes an excellent travel experience, the station was a bit hectic but once we trundled our luggage along to the train it all worked brilliantly from the welcoming hostess (who checks tickets and passports) to the comfortable seats. We took an evening train so nothing to see but in between the drinks and the food and a good book the... More

Our tickets were provided as part of our holiday package so I don’t know the cost. For St Petersburg you need the Leningradsky station which is served by Komsomplskaya Metro station on lines 1 & 5. The station is clearly signposted from the metro but you must enter Leningradsky from the front of the old station building. If you already... More

We have used the Sapsan to travel between St Petersburg and Moscow. We have appreciated the ponctuality of the trains and the confort of the seats. Additionally, we have forgotten an expensive camera under our seat. We made a declaration to Lost and Found department (not easy if you do not speak russian) without much hope. To our big surprise...
