I've traveled first time with Sapsan, however i've travelled on a many fast trains in China, France, UK. Sapsan is matching the standards, very comfortable, large space and great sound isolation. Love it, planning to take another ride in a week

You don't fly between these two places, you take a high speed train. See the country outside, avoid to and from the airport traffic jams. Arrive to and depart from city center. Bar accepts credit cards yay.

Traveling from St Petersburg to Moscow. We decided on this train ride and it was great. Fast, efficient, clean and very pleasant. Although we only traveled via economy, it was easy to book our seats and order our tickets online. Recommended!

Very nice- do not get seat with shared table- our legs had no room-we were to close to people across from us. Get the seats where you have a drop down table, much better!
