We caught the train from Moscow to St Petersburg. Less than 4 hours and city to city. Some of my colleagues took 3 hours to get to the airports in Moscow. A lot better than catching a domestic flight go on the bullet train!

This four hour train to Moscow offers WiFi (albeit it very slow, economy class must pay for it) and refreshments. Able to book in with your passport. Safe to buy tickets online. Maximum speed of around 200km/h.

Beat the airport security, queues and crowds and use the Sapsan. Four hours of comfortable travel watching Russia whizz past. The chairs reclined, the announcements were clear and snacks were available. Trains were on time, clean and modern. I can totally recommend this service.

Fast, comfortable, and on time. The Sapsan is the pride of Russian railways and it shows. The only way to travel in Russia, tickets can be booked direct with RZD.ru is the best and cheapest way. The receipt you print out doubles as your e-ticket.
