How to get to 'Udelnaya' flea market

on the metro
by taxi
This is the best way! We do not recommend to go by bus or tram because it is long and uncomfortable. There is a big risk of getting into traffic jam.

After exiting the metro, turn right - you will see the suburban train station building. Continue to the right of the station building along the railway about 100 meters. Go through the railway, turn right and go in this direction about 700 meters.

Need a taxicab? Don`t worry - it's easy and inexpensive. Click on the tab `taxi` to learn more. However, we want to remind you that traffic in St Petersburg can be very dense, so if possible, we recommend that you use the metro for travel through city.
