Even if you are not travelling to Finland, a visit should really be made to travel in the footsteps of Lenin. He returned to Russia via this station. Due to its history it has many paintings and mosaics to Lenin on the walls. The biggest monument is the statue outside

Modern Soviet style, functional and spacious even though pretty small. On your way to the Lenin statue pop in. This is where he arrived after his refuge in Switzerland and this is where the revolution sparked of.

We took the train from here to Helsinki. Got here early, and waited in the main hall, which, by this leg of our journey, was beginning to blend in with all the other train stations we have been in. The railway station is connected to the Metro (Finlandskaya (sp?)), and pretty easy to access that way. The waiting area for... More

We were taking the Allegro high speed train from St Petersburg to Helsinki so came to drop off luggage in the afternoon. The exterior is post modern classical with a figurative frieze on the exterior of a fairly brutalist style. The interior is definitely more functional than decorative. The entrance for the Allegro train however is not connected to the... More

Family of four adults traveled in second class very comfortably. The process from booking with Russian Trains to arriving at Finlandia was handled with great courtesy and professionalism. Gave us the confidence to try the underground to travel to our hotel just next to Ploschad Vosstaniya. Great experience all round, highly recommended.

If not for previous TripAdvisor reviews, I would have been hesitant to leave my taxi. The Allegro (international) departures are located in an unpromising terminal outside the main station. The neighborhood seemed a bit dicey, but my driver understood my hesitation and escorted me to the door. Don't expect this to be inside the main terminal.

Note bien: if you are headed for Helsinki, the entrance is outside the station (on the left side of the station building). It used to be inside, but nowadays there are security checks and passport control before people are allowed at the platform - no more last minute kissing! Seats for all and tax free for some - no need... More

If you use this station to go to Helsinki on the Allegro train, please be aware the entrance is not obvious. As you face the station, turn left and walk down the side of the station (on the outside). At the end you will see silver doors for the international entrance. The station is a normal station, other than the... More
