The Sapsan train was very impressive fast clean smooth and on time. The services they offer including booking a taxi to meet you at St Petersburg station were very efficient.

If you consider the headache of taking a flight or a night train to St Petersburg from Moscow then I recommend considering Sapsan as an option, with no tedious security controls this is the way to travel to St Petersburg.

Sapsun, the name of Russia's fastest bird, is a good name for this wonderful service. It covers the distance in a little under four hours. The indicator registered 199 km/hr (about 120mph) much of the time. Comfortable, airy, with snack service from trolley or snack car. Sure would be nice to see such a service in the US.

We were going to St Petersburg on holiday and decided we wanted to see Moscow while we were in Russia. Looking at all options we decided to go for the day getting the Sapsan from St Peterburg at 6.45am and returning on the 7.45pm from Moscow. We booked our tickets online using the rzd.ru website to save upcharges using an agent. The website is in Russian - however we found some clear instructions online on how to book and the process was straightforward een allowing us to pick our seats. On arriving at the train no one checked our e-tickets we had printed out, just our passports we had given details of when we booked. We were second class and the train was clean, fast and modern. We slept most of the way there so did'nt get a chance to see any of the scenery. Had a great day in Moscow and managed to pack in loads despite our short time there. Would definitely recommend as the fastest commute between St Petersburg and Moscow.
