Pulkovo Airport

St. Petersburg's international terminal Pulkovo (LED) is located in the south of the city (metro Moskovskaya). It is located 23 km away from the Palace Square. The airport offers the usual shops, restaurants and cafes (Starbucks, O’Reilly’s Irish Pub, T.G.I.Friday’s, Puro Gusto, BURGER KING) within the terminal building and hotels nearby. Keep your eyes open for ATM machines and money exchanges (obmen valyuty) if you urgently need some roubles.

Getting into town: To get into the city centre you can take Bus №39 (40Rbl) or mini-bus (marshrutka) №39 (45Rbl) to Moskovskaya Metro Station (seven stops – it will take 15-25 minutes depending on traffic) and then take the metro into town (another seven stops in the metro – about 15-20 minutes). Once you are in the metro system you can get to most parts of town quickly. Keep you eyes open for maps of the metro system if you need to find a particular station.

If you choose to take a taxi, beware of the airport taxi drivers! They are notorious for overcharging, asking 2000Rbl and up for the 23-km ride to the city centre. Always agree on a fare before getting in, keeping in mind that a reasonable price shouldn't exceed 800-1500Rbl. Theoretically, this price has been fixed and there should be a small stall to the right of the exit where a man with a clipboard will write down your destination and put you in a queue for the next available driver.
