excellent connection because the city center stops in the center of the city, a large number of passengers, a bistro too small for such a train, a complicated entry procedure

Clean, fast, and reasonably priced (especially if you buy tickets early). The train has wifi, a dining car and special areas for pets.

Sapsan Bullet train was a fun and quick way to get from Saint Petersburg to Moscow. We enjoyed the restaurant car's TV dinner style meals and snacks. Make sure to get an assigned seat with a table for the 4 hour ride.
