Well, we couldn’t come all this way and not see St Petersburg could we!? The very last and final train journey of our Trans-Siberian travels was travelling from Moscow to St Petersburg by train. There are two options for this route, the sleeper or the fancy new high-speed link. As nice as taking a last… Continue reading Trans-Siberian Travels – Moscow to St Petersburg by Train
