.This is an excellent way to travel between Moscow and St. Petersburg. The train is fast and comfortable with reasonably priced food and drinks and nice scenery along the way

My trip on Sapsan train between Moscow and St Petersburg was my unforgettable journey. It departed and arrived right on time. In addition, all the services were excellent. The atmosphere was very comfortable and cozy. In the conclusions, this was the best trip I've ever enjoyed with soft price... Thank you so much for your all, Sapsan train !!!

Went backwards to St Petersburg, Would of been nice to see where we were going. Comfortable seats, don't recline though. Station staff very helpful and polite. Service on the train good, polite young girls - not short-tempered old bags like the metro. Would use this train again.

I took the Sapsan train to travel from St. Petersburg to Moscow. It departed and arrived right on time, so it helped me to keep my schedule. Another good point was the connexion to local subway stations. On the other hand, for the cost and the length of the trip, seats on economy class could be at least a bit... More

A smooth running train - it's fast, although relatively expensive, but totally worth it. The train provides catering service, standart class seats were extremely comfortable and neat. The usial standart class fares are 3000-3500 R.

I used to think that an hour-long flight from Moscow to St Peterburg was a much better option than a four-hour train. Iwas wrong because when you add up the time it takes to get to the airport, the time speant at the airport and then the time getting home from the next airport, it actually makes more sense to...

We had to travel from St.Petersburg to Moscow and were tossing up between the Sapsan and flying. I'm so glad we chose the Sapsan. Timewise it's probably about the same if you count airline check-in etc. We went business class and there were only about 2 other people in our carriage. We were served an airline-like meal and had free... More
