ST. PETERSBURG'S RAILWAY STATIONS
MOSCOW RAILWAY STATION
Ploschad Vosstania 2, just off Nevsky Prospekt
ticket office: it is the first door on the right if
you enter the main hall via the main lobby.
FINLAND RAILWAY STATION
Ploschad Lenina 6
Intourist Ticket Office is located in the wing flanking the tracks. You can enter it from both the street and the platforms. This office (counters # 9 and # 10) will sell you tickets for the St Petersburg - Helsinki line. Counter # 16 provides fax and photocopying services and sells phonecards.
Currency Exchange is in the Main Hall of the station. Open: 10 am to 8 pm. Lunch break: 2 pm to 3 pm.
metro: walk out of the main doors and turn right -
the entrance to the metro station is at the corner.
VITEBSK RAILWAY STATION
You might need this beautiful station if you plan to go to South-West Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova, as well as some local destinations.
To find the tickets for local trains, walk along the facade of the station (away from the metro) and turn left around the corner. If you plan to go to Pushkin you should buy tickets to Detskoye Selo.
If you are going to Pavlovsk note that the station bears the same name (surprisingly enough).
WARSAW RAILWAY STATION
Naberezhnaya Obvodnovo Kanala 118
This seriously worn out station leaves much to be desired. It serves the lines to the Baltic states, Pskov, Western Ukraine and Eastern Europe. Most of the facilities offered by the station are sub-standard and the neighborhood is featureless. Maybe one day someone will give this station a total overhaul.
To find the ticket office: walk past the left wing of the station's facade, turn right and walk towards the tracks.
BALTIC RAILWAY STATION
Naberezhnaya Obvodnovo Kanala 120
This railway station serves only local lines, but you might need it if you plan to pay a visit to Peterhof or Lomonosov. You can enter the station directly from the metro. Ticket offices will be to your left. If you plan to go to Peterhof/Petrodvorets you should buy a ticket to Stary Petergof. If you go to Lomonosov you need a ticket to Oranienbaum.
See the Local trains section for further details.
