How to get to St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is Russia’s second largest city and an important transport hub. The city is home to Pulkovo International Airport, five railway terminals, one of Russia’s largest ports on the Baltic Sea, and numerous highways linking it to Russian and European cities.

By air

Pulkovo Airport is Russia’s fourth largest airport in terms of passenger traffic. Pulkovo serves more than 70 Russian and international airlines. In addition to the central passenger terminal, which opened in December 2013, it is home to the A-Group Business Aviation Centre, the Pulkovo-3 Business Aviation Centre, and a VIP lounge.

If there is no direct flight between your city and St. Petersburg, you can choose a flight through Moscow airports. There are more than 30 flights each day between Moscow and St. Petersburg, departing from three Moscow airports – Vnukovo, Domodedovo, and Sheremetyevo. The approximate flight time is 90 minutes.

Pulkovo is located 23 kilometres from central St. Petersburg. It takes 50 minutes on average to get from the city centre to the airport. Public transit will take you from the airport terminal to the nearest Metro station, Moskovskaya.

Forum personnel will be working at Pulkovo Airport from 18 to 21 September to help participants arrange transfers to their hotel and provide the necessary reference information about Forum events and available services.
