don't know the cost on the train from St. Pete to Helsinki. It is only 2 hours. From Moscow to Helsinki over night is about 80 Euro. If you live in St. Pete I was able to find cheaper flights to Europe than from Moscow or St. Pete. That is annother reason to go.

I took this route last summer. There were overnight buses (about 15 different companies) that all left around 22.30 for $25 each, but when they found out I wasn't Russian, they wanted $60. Not being a fan of the bus anyway, I took the train the next morning, $60, 5 hours, actually 6 with the time change.
