Travelling to St Petersburg
St. Petersburg is the westernmost city in Russia. And at the same time the most Russian. It symbolizes the history, politics and culture of the country over the past 300 years, brighter and stronger than Moscow.
The traditional and most convenient way to get to St. Petersburg is by plane that arrives at Pulkovo airport. Airplanes fly not only from different cities of the world, but also from different continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. You can also fly by plane from Moscow, which flies several times a day for 1.5 hours and other cities of Russia.
You can get from Pulkovo airport to the city center or the university dormitory by public transport: bus + metro. In time it can take from 1 hour to 1.5 hours. The total cost will be $ 1.5
All well-known taxi networks operate in the city — Yandex Go, Uber and GetTaxi. True, it is better not to order GetTaxi from the airport, since they have their own parking lot on the territory of Pulkovo, the total cost with luggage can be $ 4–7.
From Europe you can come by direct train or bus, which also come several times a day. One of the most budgetary options to get to St. Petersburg is a bus transfer. For example, on Ecolines or LuxExpress with a cost from 15 $.
