    Train to Finland Being Shut Down

    The Finns per this article are shutting down the fast train on 28 March (called the Allegro) between Helsinki and SPB, a 3 h 27 minute run.

    Nothing about the Lev Tolstoy, also between Helsinki and SPB, an overnight train taking 6 h 34 minutes for the same trip.

    We have a visitor from Austria who came into Russia on the Allegro and now goes back ... somehow. Travel adventures ahead for her!

    Intercity bus owners applause standing...
    All the world's Kremlin,
    And all the men and women merely agents

    Our friend got a ticket on the last train to Finland. Like the Monkees' song, replacing Clarksville with Helsinki.

    Interesting question ... so I googled it and got this answer about the train from Moscow to Berlin:

    According to the annual schedule, trains start running from 06/07/2022. Ticket sales open on 04/23/2022 at 8 am Moscow time. You can order a free SMS about the start of sales.

    Согласно годовому расписанию поезд начинает курсировать c 07.06.2022. Продажа билетов на эту дату открывается 23.04.2022 в 8 утра по московскому времени. Вы можете заказать бесплатное смс уведомление о начале продаж.
