Opening of the Finlyandskiy Railway Station

Prior to the departure of the first train the station, the locomotive and the wagons were blessed by a bishop. Nowadays the Finlyandskiy station is used for local train trips to suburbs north-west and north-east of the city, as well as trips to Helsinki on high-speed trains. In the left wing of the building is the vestibule of an underground station «Ploshad' Lenina».
