    • Metro to Finland Station early in the morning

      Saint Petersburg Jul 6, 2014 at 7:43 AM

      I have a question about St Petersburg public tranportation.
      I'll stay in St Petersburg and then I'll head to Helsinki by train. A good option for me is catch the train at 6.40 a.m at Finland Station. I'll be hosted near from Admiralteyskaya metro station.
      Is the metro working at this time? Is it safe? Will I be able to arrive on time to Finland Station?
      What's the options?
      Thank you!

      Saint Petersburg Jun 27, 2014 at 8:21 PM

      Hello. I am planning to travel to Saint Petersburg for the first time this September. I am traveling by myself and am looking for guided tours to join that go to different sights in the city as well as tours that take day trips to Peterhof or Pushkin. I want to find tours that are already scheduled that I can join. All that I have found so far are tours with companies that would charge a lot just for me with no one else on the tour.

      Thanks for any suggestions.

    • Worried about visit to St. Petersburg in May

      Saint Petersburg Mar 26, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      Going to St. Petersburg in May (2014). We are Canadian, in our 60's and going on our own for 5 days. Already have our VISA. Coming in from Helsinki on train. Frankly we are very concerned about what we might face when we get there given all that is happening ..... Should we be worried? Our consulate website basically says nothing except that they have limited services now. (They closed the St. Petersburg branch)
      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

      Visum and boat

      Saint Petersburg Mar 20, 2014 at 9:29 AM

      I have heard you don't need a visum/visa if you go to St. Petersburg by ferry and leave Russian within 72 hours. Does that mean that I can arrive with boat and leave with plane, or would I have to leave the same way as I arrived?

    • Weather, tour operators

      Saint Petersburg Mar 7, 2014 at 4:04 PM

      We'll be arriving by cruise ship on 05/27-05/28/14. Typically will I need a down coat & boots or is it usually rainy in May? We want to arrange an intensive 2 day group tour of St Petersburg & an evening ballet performance independently of the cruise ship. Many of these tour operators provide group tours with less than 20 people, which is very appealing. My difficulty is finding a tour operator that offers the 2 day tour linked with the evening ballet performance, because the playbills for the ballets are NOT released until 1 month prior to the performances. Any suggestions about making our preferred arrangements would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      Sincerely,

I have been trying to identify that fort and lighthouses. I have some pictures posted in an album on pbase.com and will send a link if anyone on here thinks he/she can determine where I was. Can anyone help? If so, thanks in advance!
