You can get to St Petersburg by rail from any major Western European city via Berlin. A roundtrip train ticket from Paris or Frankfurt to St Petersburg will cost the same or marginally more than a discounted airfare.

From Finland, there are two daily trains leaving Helsinki's central train station for St Petersburg. The morning one is the Finnish Sibelius, and the midday one is the Russian Repin. Travel time is between 4 hours, 30 minutes and 5 hours, 30 minutes, depending on the length of time spent at the border crossing. Delays can be long because post-Soviet borders are numerous and chaotic. There are also reports of train robberies in Poland and rail travel is generally not recommended.

St Petersburg has two airports: Pulkovo (Poulkovo, Pulkowo) and Rzhevka. Scheduled flights from Western Europe normally arrive at Pulkovo 2 or Pulkovo International. Domestic flights, air service to Moscow, charter flights from destinations in Southern Europe, Black Sea (Turkey) and Mediterranean use Pulkovo 1. Rather infrequent flights from Asia (Seoul and Beijing and recently Tokyo and Osaka) also arrive at Pulkovo 1.

St Petersburg's second airport is Rzhevka. This airport is the municipal airport which was used by commuter services and scheduled regional flights in Soviet times but is now almost dormant.

The network of public transportation in St Petersburg is quite extensive; however, resources of public transportation are quite over-stretched and most public transport is not particularly user-friendly. Nonetheless, the metro is reliable and cost-effective for medium- and long-distance transportation. For the shorter trips you can try trams, buses and trolleybuses, or taxis.
