How to Go to St Petersburg

Boarding a flight from India to Pulkovo International Airport (LED) is the best option for those wondering how to go to St. Petersburg. The city, being the old imperial capital of Russia as well as an important battlefield during the world war as Leningrad, is as well-connected with the world as Moscow. Pulkovo International Airport is connecting to India by only connecting flights. Located 23 kilometers south of St Petersburg, the airport Pulkovo serves the city on a regular basis feeding its international tourism. It is also the base of Russia’s Rossiya Airlines. In many cases, instead of taking a flight straight to St Petersburg airport, tourists from India make a stop at Moscow first and then make their way to the city.

How to Reach St Petersburg from India

The most common itinerary followed by tourists for traveling from India to St Petersburg is via Moscow or Astana. Both of these cities are inseparable when it comes to Russia tourism. From Moscow, there are many ways to reach St Petersburg easily. The most convenient mode of transport is train. Moscow to St Petersburg trains run on a regular basis throughout the day and overnight too. Other than that, there are connecting flights to St Petersburg from different cities around like Frankfurt, Dubai and of course, from Moscow.

The flight duration from India to St Petersburg is about 10 to 12 hours on average. The aerial distance from Delhi to St Petersburg is about 4,914 kilometers. During the Siege of Leningrad, vehicles had to drive over a frozen Lake Ladoga during winter to deliver supplies to the devastated city. But it takes much less effort to travel to St Petersburg at present.

By Air

There are no direct flights to St Petersburg, Russia from India. However, there are multiple connecting flights which are just as easy and convenient. As mentioned before, many tourists prefer to visit Moscow first. There are direct flights to Moscow from the Indian capital Delhi which operates twice every day of the week. Flown by Russia’s own Aeroflot, this air service provides the best flight duration – 6 hours 25 minutes. There are numerous flights every day from Moscow to St Petersburg and the time taken is only 1.5 hours. The next best option is the 8 hours 35 minutes flight from Delhi via Ashgabat by Turkmenistan Airlines. Emirates have flights via Dubai as well, and so do Qatar, Lufthansa and Swiss Air via Doha, Frankfurt, and Zurich.

By Train

It is not possible to go from India to St. Petersburg by train. But one can go from Moscow certainly. Reaching Moscow is easier than reaching St Petersburg, and from the capital city, there are multiple trains to take you to your destination. From Leningrad station in Moscow to Moskovsky station in St Petersburg runs the Sapsan train, which is the fastest and smoothest train journey one can imagine. It takes you to your destination in under four hours. If you want it to be a luxury trip, Grand Express and Red Arrow are there at your disposal.

By Road

Going to St Petersburg from India by roadway would be like taking the road less traveled. Unless people have an expedition to make, in which the road trip in itself is the objective, going by land makes no sense. There are geographically possible roads via Iran or Kazakhstan, and also via the Trans-Siberian Highway. But to implement them practically takes a lot of effort and political permissions.

    Priyanka Tomar

    Delhi

    Priyanka's 7 days trip to Russia

    Overall it was a good trip. Due to language issue, we were not able to interact much with Cab drivers in Moscow. Also traffic in Moscow is really bad, which was one of the pain points for us. Stay in petersburg was a memorable one. The cab driver was a Pakistani so no language issue. Though the hotel was small, but hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative. Stay in Petersburg will always be in our good books (from cab driver to hotel staff and food).

    Selva Dhandapani

    Chennai

    Selva's 6 days trip to Singapore

    Booking Process: During the booking, the travel agent Shailesh (SGR Tours And Travels ) gave us a lot of useful suggestions. He was very helpful to find the right hotel and complete the booking. Saloni (TravelTriangel): She was good at dealing with payment and invoices. Always made sure that I receive a confirmation for the payments made (mail and WhatsApp) We had a lovely Singapore and Malaysia trip. Thank you Travel Triangel. Not so happy about 1. St. Regis Hotel in Singapore, we had to wait 30 mins to get the room cleaned (at check-in desk). 2. Ramada Hotel : I had to show my confirmation to convince the staff at check-in desk to get "Quad 2 bedroom executive king and 2 single", they were going to give me "Quad executive king and 1 single", not sure who's fault is that (agent or hotel), in the end I got the room I was promised by the agent. 3. Ramada Hotel: The Balcony door was open and didn't have the key to lock it. We were not very comfortable leaving it unlocked during the night and when we were going out. I had asked 4 times the reception for the key but no luck, every time we were promised there will someone coming in an hour to fix it. 4. Ramada Hotel: TV couldn't be plugged into socket, needed converter, reported 3 times to reception but nothing happened. Overall, we had a good trip. Thanks, Selva.

    Arvind Kumar

    Chennai

    Arvind's 5 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka is an island country..where the contours of the land itself forms a kind of sinewy poetry. A very special island that travellers, from Sinbad to Marco Polo, dreamed about and with similar aspirations, me and my fiancée decided to visit SL for our honeymoon. We explored different options and stumbled upon Travel Triangle, who seemed well versed with SL, were offering competitive prices. Had a Chat an online agent - Swati and within a day, we received 4 quotes from 4 Vendors. We decided to go forward with 'Direct Link' as the Travel Co-ordinator Anto, was polite/courteous, knowledgable and honest, was able to understand our requirements and provide the best tour schedule i.e 5 days and 4 nights at Colombo/Kandy - Nuwara Eliya - Nuwara Eliya - Bentota - Bentota/Colombo. This ensured that we were able to enjoy various topographies urban/hill station/mountains/beach. Anto co-ordinated end to end right from time we had initial chat to the time we completed the tour. We Had to pay 10% as Booking and the remaining amount was paid just before we boarded our flight to Colombo from Chennai. ( They do give option to pay the remaining amount on arrival in Colombo, however, with network issues, it might be tad difficult, esp in receiving OTPs et all) Mr Hafis was our assigned tour guide as well as transporter. He was a through professional, brilliant knowledge and insights on the tourist places. He was so amazing with providing all the statistics, dates, dimensions, USPs of the places that made us admire and appreciate the places even more than we would have probably done. Also, special mention about his driving skills, we spent so much time on road but not once we experienced any jerk or lack of comfort. All the Hotels were brilliant - Topaz (Kandy) , Galway Heights(Nuwara Eliya) and Pandanus Beach Resort & Spa (Bentota). Staff, Room/View from Room and Food. Word of caution - If you are a VEG like me, it is rather important that you let reception know about it , as and when you check-in the hotel. Direct Link are experts in chalking out the travel schedule in such a way that you enjoy the max number of tourist places in as little time as possible. Of all the travel options provided, we enjoyed the below mentioned the most - Ambevala Farm, Strawberry Farm Batik Factory and Gems Museum Bluefield Tea Estate ( Mohamed the Tea Guide was Brilliant) Ramboda, Devon and St Clair's Falls Gangaramaya Temple Gregory Lake Hanuman Temple and Sita Amman Kovil Kandy Lake, Temple of Tooth Relic and Kandyan Cultural Show, Upper Lake Drive Madu River Safari - CINNAMON ISLAND-BUDDHIST TEMPLE-HINDU TEMPLE - DELTA- FISH FARM Marine Drive Important National Monuments Nuwara Eliya Post Office and Royal Botanical Gardens, Peradeniya Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage ( Break Fast at Villa Pinnewala) Addressing the elephant in the room, the security in SL post the 21st April attacks is pretty heavy and upto the mark. Just be prepared for random checks of the car by the Sri Lankan Army. However, it does not have much impact on your experience. No matter where you go, you are greeted by the happily smiling Sri Lankan, as afterall they do hold the World Record of most plesant and smiling people in the world record i.e ~ 86% of the poulation (Another gem shared by our tour guide - Hafis) We had a great time in Lanka and take this opportunity to THANK Travel Triangle, Swati, Direct Link, Anto and Hafis for making this a beautiful trip that we will cherish forever.

    Prabu's 9 days trip to Vietnam

    St VIET travels arranged a great trip in Vietnam. The rooms are well equipped and at the center of the city. The pick and drop with the English speaking guide is good but still have lot on offer to improve. Should reduce the time in taking to fabricated shops for making purchases as guides are keeping this as definite trip points. Halong and bana hills are great locations to visit.

    Tejas's 5 days trip to Goa

    Overall experience is good. Travel agent could have trip planning more effective. For example my hotel stay was in North and extreme North. So they could have planned South trip on 1 St day and travel back to North and on 2 ND day trip to North Goa then go-to to second hotel in extreme North Goa in this way they could have save time and energy.

    FAQ's of St Petersburg

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The summer months are the ideal ones to visit St Petersburg. From May to August, the temperature stays comfortable and warm enough.

    St Petersburg used to be the royal capital during the Tsar regime. Later during World War II, the city was under a 900-day blockade, famously known as the Siege of Leningrad.

    From mid-June to July, St Petersburg experiences nights with a strange white light lingering long after the sun sets, which gave birth to the moniker White Nights. The last ten days of June is celebrated as the White Nights Festival, with lots of dance, music, theatre, and opera.

    There are frequent flights of 1.5 hours duration between the cities. However, the train is often the more preferred mode. Sapsan train is a comfortable and convenient one, while Grand Express or Red Arrow is there if you want luxury trains.

    St Petersburg winters are cold and freezing throughout. January is the coldest month with an average minimum temperature of -11°C.
