I plan to take a train (the Allegro?) from St. Petersburg to Helsinki on a Friday. My questions are:
Can I book this through the Finland rail (as opposed to Russian rail) website?
Which train station do I start from in St. Petersburg? The Finland website lists two.
I would prefer to wait until I'm in St. P. to book, probably the day before. Do the trains usually have seats the day before?
I've searched the forums but most posts assume a start in Helsinki and use of the Russia train website. Thanks in advance!
