I'm planning to go on holiday to Moscow Russia in April and would really like to see Saint Petersburg as well.

I've heard that there's a speed train which travels between the two cities, does anyone know how long is the journey and how often do these trains run(once,twice a day etc)

It's called SAPSAN, there are 7 trains in both directions Saint-Petersburg > Moscow and Moscow > Saint-Petersburg.

Here is link to schedules (Google Translate)

Prices are here (translation). There are business and economy class tickets available.

The average journey is no longer than 4 hours in one direction. All trains serve every day except train 154 (runs only on Mondays and Saturdays).
