Moscow to St Petersburg High Speed Train – A Detailed Sapsan Review

By: Author Sophie Pearce

Posted on Last updated: April 7, 2023

Categories MOSCOW , RUSSIA , ST. PETERSBURG

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for details.

If you’re looking for details on the Moscow to St Petersburg high-speed train, this is the post for you!

Nowadays it couldn’t be easier to travel between Russia’s two most famous cities.

What’s more, is that you can be in either of those in just under 4 hours by taking the high-speed Sapsan train.

It’s definitely a premium way to travel and speeds through the Russian countryside like lightning.

Here’s a lowdown of how to get tickets (which can be a slightly confusing process) and what the journey will be like.

moscow to st petersburg high speed train

How to get Moscow to St Petersburg high speed train tickets

As you may or may not know, the process of getting Russian train tickets, or just navigating around Russia in general, is pretty complex.

Not many people speak fluent English and a lot of their signs are in Cyrillic.

So, unless you want to be at the station for some time – it is recommended to get your tickets before you ride online beforehand.

There are many providers that will organise this service but I used Real Russia , who were brilliant and kept me informed every step of the way.

They do charge a slight premium but it is so worth it to know that you’ll get the right tickets and end up in the right place!

They will have all the options for Sapsan and times and prices there for you to choose from.

Prices start from around £30 one way depending on the time and season that you go!

Note : the prices on their site are ‘predicted’ prices and Real Russia will purchase them for you a few weeks before the train is due to depart. 90% of the time, the price you commit to paying is the same but it may vary. Once they have purchased the ticket for you, they will email you a PDF copy which you can print off or save down to your smartphone.

What to prepare for the Sapsan train ride

Believe it or not, it’s really not as simple as showing up to the station.

You’ll need a couple of bits to travel with you;

Your Sapsan train ticket

I printed off a copy of my ticket just in case and had a copy on my phone.

But, when I boarded the train they only needed my passport.

They will have a scanning system as you board and they will inform you of your seat number.

A copy of your passport

The most important thing!

It is a legal requirement to carry this around with you at all times anyway but especially important to board your train.

You will not be able to get on without it.

The food service on the train is pretty dire and unless it’s included in your price I wouldn’t recommend it.

I’d bring some snacks or a drink for the journey.

How to reach the Sapsan train stations in Moscow and St Petersburg

From moscow.

The train departs from Leningradsky station .

To get there by metro, get the Red Line or Brown Circle Line and alight at Komsomolskaya station.

Then follow the floor signs to the  Leningradsky railway station.

Inside the station, there will be screens to let you know the station the Sapsan train will be waiting for you.

From St. Petersburg

The Sapsan station can be accessed by the Central Moskovsky Vokzal train station which is located at the top of Nevsky Prospect.

You can catch one of the many buses or trams there, or if you’re centrally located it may be easier to walk.

Finding your carriage and seat on the Sapsan train

You definitely get value for money and you can feel this as soon as you board the train.

The staff will scan your ticket and welcome you onboard the service.

Even in the economy carriages, the seats are spacious and comfortable. They play in-carriage entertainment which you can plug into as you make your way.

Depending on the carriage service that you’ve chosen many provide refreshments at your table with their premium service. 

You will be allocated a seat number with your ticket and it is important that you stick to it!

Refreshments on board the Sapsan train

There are carts on the Sapsan which stroll up and down the train serving all sorts of refreshments for you to indulge in.

Cold drinks, coffees, tea, and snacks can be purchased. But if you fancy hot food or just want to stretch your legs, you can walk to the Bar which is located in the middle of the train.

They serve hot food including pancakes, fish, suspicious-looking meat, and other meals.

They also serve alcohol which is limited to wine and beer – no vodka, which I thought strange and even scandalous! 

They do take cash and card and you can choose to take them back to your seat or sit in the bar area. Make sure you have good sea legs as it’s rather shaky.

The views from the Sapsan train route

What I liked most about the Sapsan journey from Moscow to St Petersburg was the scenery.

You sail past some of the beautiful Russian countryside, which is a welcome break from the city.

There were some beautiful farmhouses, little towns, and forests as far as the eye could see as you make your way. Make sure you have access to a window to take in the view

The verdict of Moscow to St Petersburg high speed train

All in all, I found Sapsan to be a pleasant, stress-free journey across the country.

From the moment you board to the moment you depart, you’re in really good hands.

The staff couldn’t do enough for you and the train itself is clean, modern, comfortable and spacious.

I would highly recommend Real Russia as they were so accommodating and made sure we were informed of our ticket progress every step of the way.

They also gave us instructions for where to get the train, where to board and what to expect which was all included at a very reasonable price!

A four-hour journey seems like a lot to handle, but with Sapsan you honestly don’t feel like it takes that long.

It’s a quick and convenient way to get between the two cities and the short time is perfect if you’re on a limit!

Exploring moscow: a journey through time.

Exploring Moscow: A journey through time

Moscow is a city that captivates the senses and enriches the soul, offering a journey through history, culture, and modern marvels. Whether you’re exploring its grand landmarks, indulging in its vibrant festivals, or simply soaking in the atmosphere, Moscow promises an unforgettable adventure writes DIVYA BHATIA

Moscow, the pulsating heart of Russia, is a city where history and modernity dance together in a spectacular ballet. From the majestic Kremlin to the lively boulevards, every inch of Moscow whispers tales of its storied past and bustling present. My exploration of this enigmatic city was nothing short of magical, packed with cultural delights and historical wonders that left me spellbound.

Moscow greets its visitors not just with its iconic landmarks but also with a vibrant cultural scene. The Moscow Tea Time project, for instance, offers a taste of local tradition with its distinctive red and gold porcelain teapots, serving up an array of tea blends and traditional pastries. It’s a cozy experience that warms you from the inside out. Meanwhile, the Moscow Estates project hosts festivals in historic estates, offering a chance to immerse yourself in Russia’s rich heritage through everything from ancient games to modern concerts. These experiences transform a visit to Moscow into a journey through time, leaving you enriched and enchanted.

Moscow’s storied past breathes life into its present

Moscow, the capital of Russia, boasts a rich history that continues to shape its vibrant, modern identity. First mentioned in 1147, Moscow began as a modest settlement but quickly grew into a significant trade and political hub. By the late 13th century, it became the centre of a principality, eventually transforming into the heart of the Grand Duchy of Moscow. Its rise continued solidifying Moscow’s status as the capital of a centralized Russian state. Despite Peter the Great shifting the capital to St. Petersburg in 1712, Moscow remained crucial, playing a key role in Russia’s national identity and resilience, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars in 1812.

Following the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, Moscow resumed its role as Russia’s capital and became the epicentre of the Soviet Union. The city experienced vast industrialization and became a symbol of Soviet power, marked by landmarks such as the Kremlin and the Lenin Mausoleum. Post-Soviet Moscow, emerging after 1991, embraced economic transformation and cultural revitalization, becoming a dynamic metropolis that intertwines historical richness with contemporary life.

Moscow’s history is vividly present in its architecture, such as the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral, and its cultural institutions like the State Historical Museum and the Bolshoi Theatre. Monuments and public spaces commemorate significant events and figures, creating a living narrative that enriches the daily lives of Muscovites. Historical districts like Kitay-Gorod preserve the city’s heritage while coexisting with modern development. Through its streets, buildings, and public events, Moscow’s past remains an integral part of its vibrant present, making it a city where history and modernity coexist harmoniously.

Moscow is a traveller’s paradise

Moscow today is a vibrant and welcoming city that offers a rich blend of history, culture, and modernity, making it a friendly destination for visitors from around the world. The city’s efficient public transportation system, including its world-renowned metro with opulent stations, ensures easy navigation through its many attractions. Tourists can explore iconic sites such as the Kremlin, Red Square, and Saint Basil’s Cathedral, while also enjoying the city’s diverse culinary scene, which ranges from traditional Russian fare to international cuisines. Moscow’s green spaces, like Gorky Park and the Moscow River embankments, provide tranquil settings for relaxation and recreation. Additionally, the city’s hospitality industry offers a wide array of accommodations, from luxurious hotels to cozy boutique options, all known for their warm service. The cultural landscape is rich with theatres, museums, and galleries that cater to a variety of tastes, ensuring that every traveller finds something to marvel at. Whether one is drawn to the grand architecture, the bustling arts scene, or the vibrant nightlife, Moscow is a city that warmly embraces its visitors, making it a must-visit for any avid traveller.

Must-See Attractions

The Moscow Kremlin and Red Square

The Kremlin and Red Square are the heart and soul of Moscow, a UNESCO World Heritage site that dazzles with its grandeur and historical significance. From the moment you lay eyes on the Kremlin’s ruby stars and ancient tiles, you’re transported back in time. The Tsar Cannon and Tsar Bell greet you as you enter, relics of Russia’s imperial past that stand as a testament to its powerful history. The Armoury Chamber, brimming with treasures like the Fabergé eggs and royal regalia, offers a glittering glimpse into the opulence of the czarist era.

No visit to Moscow is complete without a stroll through Red Square, where the whimsical domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral create a fantastical skyline. Lenin’s Mausoleum, where the Soviet leader rests, adds a poignant touch to the experience. The Historical Museum and the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat add layers to the rich tapestry of Russian history.

Zaryadye Park

Just a stone’s throw from Red Square, Zaryadye Park blends natural beauty with futuristic architecture. This modern park offers breathtaking views of the Kremlin and the Moskva River, making it a perfect spot for a leisurely afternoon.

Church of the Ascension in Kolomenskoye

Venturing beyond the city center, the Church of the Ascension in Kolomenskoye stands as a marvel of Russian architecture. Built to commemorate the birth of Ivan the Terrible, this church is one of the first hipped roof temples in Russia and offers a serene escape from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve

Even with the Church of the Ascension under restoration, the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve provides a rich array of historical treasures. The palace of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, the Falcon Court, and the beekeeper’s estate are just a few of the attractions that make this verdant park a delightful retreat.

Don’t let the acronym fool you-VDNKh, or the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy, is a must-see. This sprawling complex is a testament to Soviet and Russian progress, featuring exhibitions that span from agricultural innovations to space exploration. Pavilion 75, with its focus on the diverse regions of Russia, and the Cosmonautics and Aviation Centre, with its detailed exhibits on space travel, are particularly captivating.

The Moscow Eye

For a panoramic view of Moscow, the Moscow Eye is unbeatable. This Ferris wheel provides a bird’s-eye view of the city, offering a unique perspective on its sprawling urban landscape and architectural marvels.

Kolomenskoye Estate

This former royal estate is a beautiful blend of gardens and ancient structures, offering a tranquil escape steeped in history and charm.

Activities to Enjoy Crave Theatre

Moscow is a shopper’s paradise, offering everything from high-end boutiques to traditional markets. Explore GUM and TSUM for luxury brands, or head to the “Made in Moscow” shop for unique local goods. The Tsvetnoy department store is perfect for cutting-edge fashion, with regular events and pop-up markets that attract the city’s fashionistas.

Boat Trip on the “Erwin River” Yacht

Ukraine peace summit in Switzerland sees hard road to peace with Russia as the way forward becomes uncertain

Volodymyr Zelenskyy looking to the right in front of a Ukraine flag and a sign that reads Summit on Peace in Ukraine.

Western countries attending a peace summit in Switzerland have denounced Russia's invasion of Ukraine but have fallen short of persuading major non-aligned states to join their final statement. 

More than 90 countries attended the two-day talks at a Swiss Alpine resort at the behest of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on the weekend. 

The event was billed as a "peace summit" even though Moscow was not invited. 

Russia ridiculed the event from afar. A decision by China to stay away all but assured that the summit would fail to achieve Ukraine's goal of persuading major countries from the "global south" to join in isolating Russia.

A screen showing a square table in front of a long table with several countries flags behind it.

"None of the participants in the 'peace forum' knows what he is doing there and what his role is,"  Dmitry Medvedev, Russia's former president and now deputy chairman of the country's Security Council, said. 

Brazil attended only as an "observer". And in the end, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and South Africa all withheld their signatures from the summit communique, even though some contentious issues were omitted in the hope of drawing wider support.

Still, the conference provided Kyiv with a chance to showcase the support from Western allies that it says it needs to keep fighting against a far bigger enemy.

"We are responding to Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine not only with a full-scale defence of human life, but also with full-scale diplomacy," Mr Zelenskyy said.

Leaders including US Vice-President Kamala Harris, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron gathered at the mountaintop resort of Buergenstock.

US President Joe Biden, in Europe for other events last week, did not attend despite public invitations from Mr Zelenskyy.

The front lines in Ukraine have barely moved since the end of 2022, despite tens of thousands of dead on both sides in relentless trench warfare, the bloodiest fighting in Europe since World War II.

In her closing remarks, Swiss President Viola Amherd warned that the "road ahead is long and challenging".

'Things can't go on like this'

After initial Ukrainian successes that saw Kyiv repel an assault on the capital and recapture territory in the war's first year, a major Ukrainian counteroffensive using donated Western tanks fizzled last year.

Russian forces still hold a fifth of Ukraine and are again advancing, albeit slowly. No peace talks have been held for more than two years.

"We know that peace in Ukraine will not be achieved in one step, it will be a journey," European Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen said, calling for "patience and determination".

"It was not a peace negotiation because [Russia's President Vladimir] Putin is not serious about ending the war, he's insisting on capitulation, he's insisting on ceding Ukrainian territory — even territory that today is not occupied."

 Volodymyr Zelenskyy walking in front of multiple nation's flags.

In the absence of a clear path to ending the war, Mr Zelenskyy emphasised practical issues, such as nuclear safety and securing food supplies from Ukraine, one of the world's biggest grain exporters.

The summit's final declaration called for Ukraine's control over the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant and its Azov Sea ports to be restored. But in line with the conference's more modest stated aims, it omitted tougher issues of what a post-war settlement for Ukraine might look like, whether Ukraine could join the NATO alliance or how troop withdrawals from both sides might work.

"The more allies that can be found to say 'Things can't go on like this', 'This is too much', 'That's overstepping the mark', that also increases the moral pressure on the Russian Federation," Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer said.

As Sunday's talks turned towards issues of food security and nuclear power, some leaders left early.

No country came forward to host another such meeting, with notable silence from Saudi Arabia, mooted as a possible future venue. Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud said the kingdom was ready to assist the peace process but a viable settlement would hinge on "difficult compromise".

Since initial peace talks in the first months after the February 2022 invasion, Ukraine has consistently demanded Russia withdraw from all its land, while Moscow has demanded recognition of its rule over territory its forces captured.

Last week, in remarks clearly aimed at the conference, Mr Putin said Russia would not halt the war until Kyiv withdraws its forces fully from four provinces that Moscow only partially controls and claims to have annexed. Kyiv swiftly denounced that as a demand for surrender.

"Of course we … understand perfectly that a time will come when it will be necessary to talk to Russia," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said.

"But our position is very clear: We will not allow Russia to speak in the language of ultimatums like it is speaking now."

Western leaders at the summit endorsed Kyiv's refusal to negotiate under such terms.

"Confusing peace with subjugation would set a dangerous precedent for everyone," Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said.
