A Reuters witness saw eight ambulances near the Sennaya Ploshchad metro station.
Another agency, RIA Novosti, said there appeared to have been blasts at two metro stations.
Three metro stations have been closed, local media outlet Fontanka reported.
“We don’t know the exact number of those killed, but it is about 10 people,” Andrei Kibitov, a spokesman for the Saint Petersburg governor, said.
He added that about 50 people were wounded, two of which were undergoing emergency surgery.
A huge hole was blasted in the side of a carriage with metal wreckage strewn across the platform. Passengers were seen hammering at the windows of one closed carriage.
Social media users also posted photographs and video from the scene showing people lying on the floor and a train with a mangled door nearby.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was in St Petersburg to attend an economic forum, said the government was considering all possible causes for the blasts.
“I have already spoken to the head of our special services, they are working to ascertain the cause (of the blasts),” Putin, at a meeting with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko, said.
“The causes are not clear, it’s too early. We will look at all possible causes, terrorism as well as common crime,” he added.
The Moscow metro also said it was tightening security following the the blasts in St. Petersburg.
Russia’s public transportation systems have been targeted by attacks in the past.
At least 38 people were killed in 2010 when two female suicide bombers detonated bombs on packed Moscow metro trains.
A suicide raid on the capital’s Domodedovo airport that was claimed by fighters from the North Caucasus killed 37 people in January 2011.
