History of St. Petersburg, Russia


St. Petersburg has a fairly extensive public transport network, serving nearly all of the city. However, public transport is often over-used, and can be not particularly user-friendly. Nonetheless, the metro is a very reliable and cost-effective solution for medium and long-distance journeys, and also good for journeys within the downtown area. For shorter trips you're better off using trams, buses and trolleybuses, or taxis (if you have money to spare). If you come on business or with a large family, you might also consider renting a car or a van (with driver or without).
