Below you’ll find a list of prices on extremely needed things for tourists in Saint Petersburg. Why we included a cup of cappuccino and even placed it on the top position? Well, it’s a nice start to a beautiful day in the city, especially when you’re sitting in a superb coffeeshop overlooking classicism buildings. So we think it’s also a good start for our list. Take you cup and study how much things cost in St. Petersburg (in rubles) in 2018.
Important note. For some points we have given approximate figures. An accurate figure depends on number of options and your status. For example, the Russian museum runs several buildings hosting different exhibitions, and you visit one of them or several, so the ticket price varies; and there is difference in charge for Russian residents (the Russians and the foreigners working or living here) and non-residents as well as it exists for children, students, pensioners, owners of ISIC cards and so on.
Regarding the routes from St. Petersburg to other countries, the cost of travel strongly depends on departure date and operating company, let alone that within a promoting campaign you can go for as little as half the normal price.
In some cases, when prices range is big enough we gave the most frequent variants.
