Duty Free Shops to Appear at Russian Railway Stations

Duty Free Shops to Appear at Russian Railway Stations
Duty Free shops will appear at Russian train stations

Tourists will be able to buy perfumes, alcohol and other goods without paying taxes at Duty Free shops, that appear soon at Russian railway stations. One of the first shops will be opened at the Finland Station in St. Petersburg.

      The train “Allegro” popular among tourists leaves from this station. It is running between Helsinki and the northern capital of Russia.

      Duty Free will be located on the first platform, from which an international train departs. Experts believe that the main buyers in this shop will be the Russian tourists, not the Finnish ones.

      If the experiment proves succesful, more shops will probably appear at the other stations of St. Petersburg (Mosckovsky, Ladozhsky and Vitebsky train stations) and at some Moscow stations.

      It should be mentioned, that in Western countries Duty Free stores can be found only at the airports, except Hong Kong, where there is one shop at the station.
