Allego Train - St. Petersburg to Helsinki In Under 4 Hours.

Helsinki, Finland and St. Petersburg, Russia have long been uneasy neighbors. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the relationship has warmed as economic ties increased considerably.

Despite continued difficulties between Europe and Russia, the nearly five hour drive is a popular one for citizens of both countries. The Allegro Train cuts the journey down to a bit over three hours.

Macro economic differences are irrelevant to Finns seeking cheaper consumer goods or Russians visiting Finnish hospitals.
