Russia has an extensive railway network and you can get virtually anywhere by train. They say that the most exciting railway trip in Russia is the one over the Trans-Siberian line from Moscow to Vladivostok (or vice versa). Of the more useful train services available in St. Petersburg one should mention St. Petersburg - Moscow overnight sleeper trains and the St Petersburg - Helsinki service.

Which station do I go to if I need a train to/from:

Moscow, Helsinki, Berlin, Bucharest, Budapest, Kiev, Lviv (Lvov), Minsk, Murmansk, Novgorod, Petrozavodsk, Prague, Pskov, Riga, Sofia, Tallinn, Vilnius, Vologda, Warsaw?

Buying tickets for inter-city and international trains.
The St. Petersburg Railway Agency

Address: Naberezhnaya Kanala Griboyedova 24 (200 yards South of the corner of Nevsky Prospekt and Kanal Griboyedova)

Here you can buy railway tickets at least 24 hours prior to departure time. You will need Intourist counters, which are located upstairs. When you enter the building turn right, walk past the schedules, turn right again and go upstairs. Counters 90 to 105 will be able to serve you.

If you buy tickets less than 24 hours before your train departs you should go to Intourist ticket offices at specific railway stations. See Which station do I need?
