Hi, a friend and I are doing a fleeting visit to north-west Europe. We arrive in Helsinki this Sat 13 August and plan to leave on the Tuesday to make our way up to St Petersburg. We know it's a short period of time but work is not as flexible! I have been told that it is possible to get a visa to visit Russia on the train from Finland. Is this true? If no, can anyone advise the fastest, easiest way to obtain one. There are a number of websites but unsure of how legit they are.
