“Trip to St Petersburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

If you can find it (no signs at the station, not very helpful) Sapsan is a great way to move from A (Moscow) to B (St. Petersburg, or v.v.) in a very short time (around 4 hrs).

“Easy and cost effective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are travelling light then getting the train from the airport into 2 or 3 train stations in central Moscow is very easy and cost effective. You can purchase tickets at the terminal and use credit card, menu in English

“Superfast Journey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I liked everything about this train. I bought our tickets on-line and then we picked them up at the station. It was clean and easy to book tickets. It got us from Moscow to St Petersburg so much faster than the regular train that we were even able to sightsee in Moscow before leaving. We arrived in St Petersburg at a reasonable hour, too. We took a taxi from the station on arrival, which was really easy to organise. There is a stand where you book and then the driver comes to get you and take you to your taxi. I will definitely take this train again, although I will try to book earlier to get a cheaper ticket!

“Quick and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The seats were comfortable and the ride quick (relatively) and smooth. Wi-Fi was not working, which is annoying.

“One of the best trains that I've used in Russia.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

One of the best trains that I've used in Russia. Excellent service when buying tickets at the website. It wasn't clean enough in the train and the meal was terrible.
