Was inspired by the trip to St. Petersburg and decided to compose a track and record a short video-review.
Advice: 1) buy a transport card - "Podorozhnik" (it costs 60 rub. that can be payed your back if you return the card before leaving the city).
* How to use:
Just put some money on it and pay for your trips.
2) once you arrive in the city and go by metro with your luggage, make sure to buy a token (zheton) for your luggage and go through the wide ticket gate, if you don`t want to have troubles.
(BTW the closest metro station to the Railway station (Moskovsky vokzal) is Ploshad Vosstaniya.)
3) never ask conductors how to get a place or where it`s better to get off, if you really need help you`d better ask passengers or passers by (ask several people, if the majority of them point at the same direction then you might be sure it`s right way to go :)).
