Moscow to St Petersburg Overnight Train - Grand Express (or Vice Versa)

Duration
2 Days
Prices:
On request

Ride between Russia’s modern capital and its artistic heart aboard the elegant Grand Express. Tour Red Square and the Kremlin in the heart of political Moscow before boarding the Grand Express and heading to St. Petersburg to gaze upon the architectural masterpieces of Peter the Great’s Russia and getting lost in the artistic treasure-troves of the State Hermitage and Russian Museum.


You will save on accommodations costs when you take the Overnight Grand Express journey between Moscow and St Petersburg.

Moscow is Russia’s political and cultural capital. The city’s dynamic atmosphere mixes old-world opulence and communist legacy. Head to the State Historical Museum and the bulbous domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral to experience the city’s classical heritage before seeing Lenin’s Mausoleum, where Communist leader Vladimir Lenin’s embalmed body remains on display, and Fallen Monument Park, with its collection of Soviet icons, to take in its more recent Soviet past. Whether you want to explore history or feel the energy of a world metropolis, you won’t be disappointed in Moscow. Be sure to visit the Bolshoi Theatre, home of the world’s most famous ballet company, and Red Square and the Kremlin, the nation’s political centre, before boarding the Grand Express and heading to St. Petersburg. (Trip can be done in reverse)

The Grand Express is Russia’s only private luxury train and its most elegant mode of travel. Essentially a boutique hotel on rails, the Grand Express boasts cozy bedrooms, hot showers, a charming restaurant car, impeccable service, and gorgeous views of the Russian countryside. You’ll ride in style as you cross the 635 kilometres between Moscow and St. Peterburg, enjoying unmatched personal service and the ability to upgrade to private meals in your suite and the best comforts of travel by rail.

Your destination is St. Petersburg, on the Baltic Sea. Although Moscow has been Russia’s capital for the past 100 years, St. Petersburg remains its artistic and imperial heart. Peter the Great built the city in the early 18th century and today it remains a port of palaces and cathedrals that show off two centuries of Russian decadence. Visit the enormous State Hermitage to see the wealth of the old empire before gasping at the breathtaking golden spire of the cathedral at Peter and Paul Fortress. Art lovers will find Russian masterpieces to ponder over at the Russian Museum while music fans can delight in world-class opera and ballet at the Mariinsky Theatre and the Shostakovich Philharmonic. St. Petersburg offers the old world at its best.

    In order to create a new luxury train, the company "Grand Service Express" has set a high threshold. No wonder , the train has been meeting modern western standards of service on the night railway transport during more than ten years of practice.

    The high threshold set for design arrangement of the train was passed successfully. Today the "Grand Express" easily wins over not only the direct rivals -- premium service night trains, but also the high-speed train Sapsan. It is easy to have a comfortable voyage between the two capitals of Russia. Book tickets for the "Grand Express" and choose a class of service in line with your idea of a comfortable trip from Moscow to Saint-Petersburg or back.
