Two night stay in St Petersburg - October 2013

Hi there,

Myself and my partner are hoping to travel from Dublin to Tallinn Estonia in October for four nights, we are hoping to stay one night in Tallinn and they travel by bus/train to St Petersburg and stay two nights and they return to Tallinn by bus/train and stay last night in Tallinn, we are hoping to take in some of the main sights and are looking for some information on buses/trains from Tallinn to St Petersburg and also some recommendations for good value centrally located hotels in St Petersburg? Would two days be long enough or should we stay 3 nights? Any information would be greatly appreciated including info on best way to obtain visas/tour guides etc. We have always wanted to visit St Petersburg and this would be the perfect opportunity.

You can get train or bus tickets on-line, quite a number of agencies sell them, here's one of the links you might use: http://www.reisiekspert.ee

A month ago I went there for a short visit and we were travelling with a baby, so we chose to fly - Tallinn-Helsinki flight takes 20 minutes, and then another 45 minutes to St.Petersburg.

Well, you need visas. You have to find out about that in your Russian Embassy. Hopefully, my colleagues will be more helpful here.

I'm not trying to offend, but staying 4 nights in Tallin and 2 or 3 nights in St. Petersburg makes no sence to me, as these places are uncomparable. The more you stay in St. Petersburg the better, as you can easily occupy yourself for 2 weeks with activities and museums.

For trains check www.rzd.ru
