Pulkovo 2 Airport

Care about your suitcases. The hall with pipelines is not comfortable.

Purchase some rubles in the airport. 1000 RUB or 2000 RUB is enough for buses, metro, water.

You exit to the guest hall => taxi drivers attack you. Repeat several times that you have a car, you don't need their services.

Attention: never never use the taxi in the airport. All prices are fake, very high.
