The Sapsan high-speed train is the way to go between Moscow and St. Petersburg. It is clean and comfortable, quiet, and efficient. Tickets and seat reservations are found easily online and are reasonably priced, considering what you pay to fly or the time spent traveling by regular rail. Simple meal and drink included with your ticket are delivered to your seat or you can visit the bistro for more selection. Staff is friendly and helpful.

You take the Sapsan bullet train and feel why we dont have them in India. We took the train from St Petersburg to Moscow , 750 kms and covered the journey in 3.5 hours!!!! Wooo!!!
Trains is well main and well maintained. On the train you dont feel much of a difference but its fun to see the speed displsy on the board inside the cabin, max our train touched was 210 kms/hr
Good entertainment syetem and decently well stocked cafe though little expensive. They offer 3 class to travel. Wifi is free in only business class and meal is included in above 2 classes and not on economy. A good experience for people from India where we dont have such trains. Also train schedule from SPB to Moscow is good you start around 11 and are in Moscow by 2 so save a lot of time

We took the train from St. Petersburg to MOscow. It's approximately 4 hours each way. Our ticket included a "boxed meal." That usually denotes something that my husband and I won't eat. Well, they fooled us. The boxed breakfast and the boxed evening meal were both good and filling. The service on the train rivaled that of premium economy class flying, as the servers were always around if you needed anything. The bathrooms weren't that appealing and probably rivaled that of economy class flying. The seats are 2, aisle and then 2. Our train car had a table with 4 seats at it. There were 2 set up s like that if you're traveling with companions.

I took the train from Moscow to St. Petersburg, normal train takes 9 hours, this one takes it in 4 hours only, the cost vary according to time and class, I booked the minimum ticket which was 3100 Rubel. The good thing is that you can book online and even choose your seat. It was very clean , and it’s timing was accurate. It has another plus that it says the stations in English which is a challenge in Russian transportation.

The 4 hour train ride in economy class was very comfortable. Recommend to book seats with a table. We brought our own food and enjoyed it while looking a the lovely view passing by.
