From Finland

The Finnish VR Group provides excellent information on train travel from Finland to St Petersburg. There are two daily departures from Helsinki. Tickets can be purchased through some travel agencies and at major VR train stations in Finland, but cannot be purchased online. Border crossing formalities are handled on board the train, and currency exchange is available.
 

 
 

From Moscow
 

The easiest way to get between downtown Moscow and St.Petersburg's heart is by a Sapsan high-speed train. The ride takes between 3h 45min and 4h 45min, there are 6 daily departures in both directions.
Night trains are a cheaper option, a 7-hour ride in 2nd class (roughly equivalent to European sleeping car). There are 4 beds and a table in an enclosed compartment.
