The cheapest way to arrive in St Petersburg from Helsinki

Hi,

I'm planning a trip to St Petersburg, in August/05, and I'd like to know the cheapest way to arrive there leaving from Helsinki. Is it a cruise a good choice?

1. Re: The cheapest way to arrive in St Petersburg from Helsinki

Hi,

i live in St.-Petersburg and i travel to Helsinki pretty often, so i can tell you about the best deals:

1) Bus - costs around 12-15 euro one way, takes about 7-9 hours. Russian Buses park in Helsinki at the back of Finnkino cinema and leave arond 12-14 p.m. depending on the week day. You can find bus drivers, guides there since early morning, so you can come around and make negotiation about the price and time.

2) Train - 50 or 90 euro depending on class

3) Air - from 200 euro

P.S. Be on time with russian visa :-)

P.P.S. Have fun when you come around :-)
