Day trip to St Petersberg from Helinski

You need a visa and all the red tape that entails. The only visa-free option is to go by ferry, and then you will be looking at more than a day trip. Really you need more than a day anyhow.

Basically, either devote half your trip to St Petersburg and get stuck into the visa paperwork pronto or forget it and spend a day in Tallinn instead - great sightseeing, easy travelling and NO visa.
