Ленинградский вокзал

Leningradsky Station is the oldest railway station in Moscow. Every day it dispatches and receives more than 40 inter-city trains (including high-speed trains), as well as more than 100 commuter trains. It connects Moscow to St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk and Murmansk, as well as Tallinn and Helsinki. Commuter trains connect this station with Khimki, Skhodnya, Zelenograd, Solnechnogorsk, Klin, Konakovo and Tver.

Comfortable trains (Krasnaya Strela, Avrora and others) run between Leningradsky Station in Moscow and Moskovsky Station in St. Petersburg. Since December 2009, the Moscow — St Petersburg route is serviced in the morning, afternoon and evening by modern high speed Sapsan trains built for Russian Railways Corporation by the German corporation Siemens. The trains are capable of speeds up to 350 km/h, which means that a trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg takes about 3 hours and 45 minutes. Two of the wagons of the Sapsan trains are business class, and the rest are economy class. For those who usually fly between Russia’s two biggest cities, the Sapsan is a good alternative that takes passengers from the center of Moscow to the center of St. Petersburg (or vice versa) very comfortably.

The building of Leningrad Station has cozy waiting rooms and lounges. Porters are on hand to help drag or carry your hand luggage and large items within the forecourt or beyond it. If you need to leave your luggage at the station, lockers are available for this purpose. There is paid parking next to the station. On the square in front of the station is Moskovsky Department Store.
