What Languages People Speaks in St. Petersburg?
by: Davide

Hello Noyel,

Thank you for posting a question on our website.

The official language of Russia is Russian. Hence, people in St Petersburg speaks Russian. Russian is the commonly spoken language everywhere.

However, you may find some people being able to speak English only in big malls, top museums, and well known restaurants where foreigners goes. If you are thinking to visit Russia I recommend taking with you a small dictionary or using Google translator because only a small rate of people speaks English in St Petersburg.

Hope it helps!
