TRIP TO ST. PETERSBURG
PLACES TO VISIT IN ST.PETERSBURG
Peter the Great had no apparent interest in the far side of the Neva, and today, beyond the embankment and Finland Station, among the factories and railway lines, there are few attractions.
The Finlyandsky vokzal is where, in 1917, Lenin arrived from exile in Switzerland (having ridden in a sealed railway carriage through Germany, Sweden and Finland) and gave his legendary speech from
the top of an armoured car, in the square where his statue now stands. After fleeing a second time he again arrived here from Finland, this time disguised as a rail fireman, and the locomotive he rode
in is displayed on the platform. It's not really the same station, having been rebuilt following WWII. The
Ploshchad Lenina metro station is next door.
