Lonely Planet review

Finlyandsky vokzal , rebuilt after WWII, is famous as the place where, in April 1917, Lenin arrived from exile and gave his legendary speech atop an armoured car. When the progress of the revolution began to look iffy, it was from here that Lenin hightailed if off to Finland, only to return again in October to seize power.
