Quite a small area, duty free opens half an hour before train arrives. Staff are doing their job only. Not much seating. As mentioned staff allow you to purchase over your alcohol limit and don't inform you. Perfume quite expensive.

The Russians certainly know how to make their buildings spectacular, this is just a railway station but could easily be mistaken for a palace or museum.

Boarding gate is opened half an hour before departing time. Small area to fit all passengers while waiting for the train to arrive at the station. Plus point for muslims - there is a cafe serving halal food just as you exit Metro station Ploshchad...More

We trecked across the river to visit the 'sealed train' in which Lenin arrived for the revolution. Yes it's still there, in its little enclosure, today's Russia clearly doesn't want to know. Went into the station - no signs anywhere. Went to the paltform barriers,...More

The station itself is slightly outdated. There are limited seating areas but more then enough ticket booths and automated machines on either side. Not overly exciting at all but we had to catch the train from here to Vyborg very recently. The large and imposing...More

We arrived at the station over an hour before the train departed and already all the seats were taken, which wasn't surprising given that there were about 20. Many people also put their bags next to them on seats... There is a vending machine in...More

Truly awful. A complete lack of space. With over an hour until departure it was standing room only. There are better facilities in the main hall for the suburban services. Needs sorting.
