At Moskovsky Railway Station, travellers will find lines to South and Central Russia, but also local links to the Mayakovskaya and Vosstaniya Square stations of the Saint Petersburg Metro, the deepest subway in the world.
The railway station also provides the terminus of the Moscow-St. Petersburg railway. Opened in 1951, the track spans over 400 miles and is used by thousands of commuters every day.
