Traffic Information


Saint Petersburg is a major transport hub with an extensive road infrastructure that makes it highly suitable to discover with a rental car. And if you're looking to leave city limits, it will come as good news that Saint Petersburg is connected to the rest of Russia and Europe by numerous highways. The city is an important transport corridor linking Scandinavia to Russia and Eastern Europe with E18 leading to Helsinki, E20 to Tallinn, E95 to Pskov, Kiev and Odessa, and E105 south to Moscow.


Pulkovo Airport is the main international hub for Saint Petersburg and the base of our 24/7 car rental office. Located 13 miles from downtown Saint Petersburg, it should take you about thirty minutes to reach the center. Our Hotel Angleterre location, situated across Saint Isaac's Square, is perfectly placed to jump into the history and romance of Saint Petersburg. All the major museums, parks and architectural highlights are within a short driving distance with a rent-a-car.


The Saint Petersburg Ring Road is the main highway encircling the city and will take you in and out of the Russian jewel with ease. However, due to common traffic it is advised to avoid driving during rush hours AM and PM. Paid parking on-street is available throughout the city. Watch out for the No Parking signs, however, or your car might get towed. The easiest and safest option is to park in one of the many underground parking lots. Usually they are located under big shopping malls like Stockmann and Galeria with rates ranging around 150 RUR for one hour.
