Seating Options

While the trip between Helsinki and St. Petersburg is now a mere 3 ½ hours, it seems no shortcuts were taken when it comes to comfort. First Class cars accommodate only 42 travelers and even include a conference room that can hold up to 6 business-minded travelers. These air-conditioned cars are particularly restful and satisfying. Each individual leather seat is spacious and comes with a fold-down table and adjustable backrest, individual lighting, a power outlet, a place for coats, a footrest and storage pockets for newspapers & magazines. There is a bathroom located at the entrance of the train car, and overhead luggage racks and storage space at the end of the car. All to make sure you effortlessly cross countries without discomfort ever crossing your mind.

Meals & Concessions

Between all the onion domes you’ll see in St. Petersburg and Helsinki, chances are you’re going to get hungry. Fortunately, we’ve considered that. On board the Allegro, you’ll find a restaurant car that features Finnish and Russian cuisine (drinks, snacks and a la carte dishes). And payment is just as convenient, with Euros, Rubles, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club and Eurocard all being accepted. A snack at your seat is also included in the price of a First Class ticket, as well as coffee and tea being readily available from a self-service station.

So why wait till you arrive to enjoy all the local flavor?

On Board Services

For a relatively short trip, there’s a lot of ready comfort. There’s an onboard conference room to work in, and complimentary WiFi, headphones, newspapers and magazines (in English, Finnish and Russian) to relax with. There’s a power outlet at every seat, as well as a specially chosen international crew that is fluent in English, Finnish and Russian on every train. You’ll even find an onboard currency exchange while traveling in Finland.

Services at the station

Individual stations will vary, but most offer information & ticketing counters, waiting areas, and a Luggage Office or storage lockers so you can enjoy the surrounding shops and restaurants unencumbered.
