The fastest and easiest way to get to St Petersburg to Moscow is by the Sapsan high speed train. Flying is an absolute hassle and the Sapsan train only takes about 3 hours, so it’s a no brainer. Both terminals are bang in the city center and the tickets are not expensive either. So if you are spending 7-10 days in Moscow you can easily fit in two or three days in St Petersburg. Food and accommodation is far cheaper up north and if you go in June the White Nights Festival will offer plenty of activities. Regardless of when you visit there is plenty of things to do. In my three days I visited these museums:
- The Hermitage
- The Menshikov Palace
- Peter and Paul Fortress
- The Museum of the Defense and Siege of Leningrad
