Train tour/travel between Moscow, St Petersburg, then onto Finland.

Jump to last reply

So, we've decided to head to Austria with the 'kids' (mid 20's) for Christmas. They will then head off on their own travels. Dh & I will have about 3 weeks to travel, we're thinking of heading to Moscow & St Petersburg as we have never been to this area. (Have travelled pretty extensively in Europe).

We will fly into and out of London (at this stage), fly to Munich, collect a car and have Christmas in Salzburg and maybe head to Vienna (missed previously). Then I imagine we would fly to Moscow. Just wondering about a train ride to St Petersburg? Scenic? Interesting? Then again a train to Finland and beyond (Ferry's too :-) ).

Any thoughts? We are normally very 'no real plans/independent travellers but imagine for this part of the world we would need to more 'organised'.

Love to hear your thoughts.
