“A speedy way to travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We left Helsinki on Friday afternoon for a two day trip to St.Petersburg. I was amazed how smoothly and quickly we arrived to our destination. The train was excellent with all services one requires during such a trip. The visa formalities were not such a nuisance as they were in the past. In the future if/when I will travel to St.Petersburg again I will always choose Allegro.

“Fast, easy and cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

This is the best method to get from St. Petersburg to Helsinki fast. If you choose an early morning train it is very cheap too. The train is comfortable, provides free drining water and has electrical outlets at every seat, so you can do some work and charge all your devices.

“Say hi to Leningrad!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

If only one wouldn't need a visa to get there. The train is superb and in mint condition. Very smooth and fast traveling. Border and custom formalities are done quickly and on board the train.

If you want a short visit to Russia the Allegro -train is the best and easiest choice for you. Jump into train in Helsinki station and you are in amazing St.Petersburg in less than 3 hours.
