Once you get out of the train, you can easily reach any hotel or apartment by the public transport (bus, minibus, etc.).
(Moskovsky station Nevsky pr., 85)
Located in the center of St. Petersburg, on Vosstaniya Square. The Moscow railway station was built in 1842 by decree of Nicholas I. The architect of the Renaissance building is the famous Konstantin Thon, who was the author of the project of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow.
Today, the station is one of the five largest in Russia. The traffic is heavy: every day, more than 30 long-distance trains arrive in the Northern capital and 50 electric trains bring their passengers from the suburbs of St. Petersburg. In addition, the Sapsan high-speed train comes here from Moscow; in just 3 hours and 40 minutes you can reach St. Petersburg.

This young and modern station is located quite far from the center, in the Krasnogvardeysky District. The trains are arriving from North and East directions.
Work on the construction of the Ladozhsky station was carried out in the 1980s, but the project was suspended. Only in 2003, the station complex was built according to the drawings of the architect Nikita Yavein. The first train to arrive was Leo Tolstoy, which follows the route from Helsinki to Moscow.

(Finlyandsky station Lenin sq.,6)
The building of the Finlyandsky Station was built in 1870 by the architect Peter Kupinsky. The interior design of the halls was done by Finnish craftsmen. The station is located in the Vyborgsky district, on Lenin Square. Commuter trains from suburbs and high-speed Allegro trains arrive from Finland.
This station is famous for the fact that Vladimir Lenin came here after emigration and proclaimed a socialist revolution. You can see his locomotive in a glass pavilion. During the Great Patriotic War, in besieged Leningrad, only Finland Station was operational and was able to save the lives of many people - evacuation was ongoing, food and weapons were delivered.
The modern station complex was created by architects P. Ashastin, N. Baranov, Y. Lukin. The unique feature is allegorical high reliefs, which were made by students of the famous school of V.I. Mukhina.
