How to get from airport St Petersburg to Salt Pier cruise port

There is no Metro station within close proximity to the Salt Pier! The reasons for choosing such an inconvenient parking spot are unknown. There are several versions: the main river station in St. Petersburg is very congested since currently, the most popular route for river cruises is Moscow – St. Petersburg. The second version is that the cost of parking ships here is much lower than in the main river port. In addition, these berths are formally located in the Leningrad region.

There are several means of public transport to get there:

  • from Lomonosovskaya metro station-buses No. 8, 119, 476
  • from Alexander Nevsky Square metro station No. 8
