Airport to city Centre

There are 5 of us arriving this week at 3.45 at Terminal 2, Pulkovo Airport with one piece of luggae each. Is it better to get the hotel to pre-book some sort of transport or are there any websites in English that I can pre-book transport on?

Thanks in anticipation of your assistance.

Hello lassie,

I found three web-sites in English where you can book minivan in Saint-Petersburg.

Look here

Thank you Irina for your help and best wishes.

Is there anywhere out of the city we should go? We would have liked to see the gardens and fountains at Peterhof but not sure if it is worth the trip when the fountains are not on and it is so early in the season. If we were to go there would we be better to go by train or bus? This is our first trip to Russia and none of our party speak Russian.

Thanks again

Lassie

I wouldn't go to Peterhof in this season. It is better to go in Pushkin (Tsarskoe Selo) and to visit Catherine Palace

www.pushkin-town.net/.pushkin/eng/index.htm

The best way to go there is by bus from metro station Moskovskaya. When you leave metro you will see a big square with statue of Lenin :) in the middle. Buses to Tsarskoe Selo stay on the small street behind this statue. It is not difficult to find them. Number of buses are K-286, K-287, K-299 and K-342. Buses go every 10-20 minutes and your way will take about 45 min.

Caterine Park and Palace is not the last stop of the buses. Try to ask about Caterine Park and Palace people or driver. I think somebody from passengers will undersdand English. :) I hope. :)

Palace / museum doesn't work on Tuesday.
