The capital of Finland is a compact city easily explored by foot. Helsinki is located on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland. Design, architecture, culture and shopping are all great exploration angles as well as large park areas, forests, lakes, and the coastline with numerous islands sprinkled off that make it certain there’s no shortage of natural presence. It is worth mentioning that it is also a bustling center for business, education, research, and government. Needless to say, there’s something going on in Helsinki every day of the year.

St. Petersburg

Welcome to Saint Petersburg! Its canals flow around buildings inspired by Paris’s romantic architecture, parks reminiscent of the greenery of Versailles, cathedrals taken straight from the reverent Rome, and streets cobbled like the avenues of jolly old London. To visit St. Petersburg is to visit all of Europe’s best cities all at once, a land dubbed by Peter the Great as “a window looking into Europe.” With all this beauty, it is no surprise that St. Petersburg inspired many of Russia’s most amazing artists.

Review on train: AE782

Travel from Helsinki to St. Petersburg, Russia
" Fantastic trip! My colleagues and I were concerned about the language barrier as the Russian Train website alerts that many agents do not speak English. I am thrilled to tell you that the Russian Train line and all their agents were very courteous, helpful and spoke English quite well. The train was clean, food was very good, and the ride itself very smooth, comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you all for making our vacation such a memorable experience!!! "

Review on train: AE784

Smooth and comfortable journey. A bit hiccup on the return trip to Finland
" The train ride was smooth and comfortable. There was wifi and electrical outlet on board. The journey was pleasant. However, on the boarding day at the St. Petersburgh's Finland station, there was a delay presumably because the earlier train from Helsinki (that we were supposed to take) arrived late. We were kept at the Finland station check-in gate for about an hour without anyone explaining what was going on. The station personnel refused to talk to us, indicating that they didn't know English.

Review on train: AE783

" The fast train whisked us from St. Petersburg to Helsinki. There was plenty of room for our group, though finding a place for our suitcases was challenging. The car was immaculately clean, as were the restrooms. Food service was fine. This is a good way to travel, and I would do so again in Russia or Finland. Economical, too! "
