Finlyandsky Railway Station

Finlyandsky Railway Station (October 2014)

St Petersburg's Finlyandsky Railway Station, as its name suggests, serves trains heading towards Helsinki and Vyborg. Suburban trains from here also leave for Vyborg, Primorsk, Lake Ladoga and Repino. The station was opened in 1870 when Finland was a grand duchy of the Russian Empire. The station is especially associated with the October Revolution as Lenin arrived here in 1917 upon returning from Germany. It also became the end of the Road of Life during the Siege of Leningrad when the first train with supplies arrived here in February 1943.
