How to get there: By train from St. Petersburg to Moscow
So there we were, from the autumnal St. Petersburg on the way to Moscow – in a German ICE train. The "Sapsan", which we chose as an alternative to a domestic flight, exceeded our expectations. Not only did the high-speed train, which travels at speeds of up to 300 km/h, take us the 700 kilometers to Moscow in less than four hours. It was thereby even in the cheapest category, which we had booked in advance online for 35 € p.P. have booked, very comfortable. A real alternative to the domestic flight. Interesting is perhaps the fact that the trains were supplied by Siemens, but the software was a proprietary development. The software was much more expensive than the one offered by Siemens and is worse, but Russian.
