Vladivostok

Vladivostok is the largest city in the Far East of Russia, on the coast of the magnificent Pacific Ocean, with incredible bays, bridges, ships and fresh seafood. It is the capital of the Primorye region, the end point of the famous Trans-Siberian route. The city surrounds the Zolotoy Rog (Golden Horn) bay and has many hills and viewpoints. Boat trips around the bay to Russky Island (Russia) is the favorite activity not only for tourists but also for the locals. Vladivostok is also very famous for its gastronomy composed mainly of the freshest seafood that abounds in the waters of this area.

 

The formation of Vladivostok's cultural traditions was seriously influenced by the neighboring eastern states. Even during a simple walk through the streets one can notice elements of Asian culture inherited from the closest neighboring countries and at the same time the architecture leaves no doubt that it is a Russian city.

 

Vladivostok is a treasure trove of attractions. One of the main symbols of the modern city are its cable-stayed bridges. There are two such bridges in the city. The Golden Bridge is 1.5 km long and the Russian Bridge is 1.1 km long. These constructions are incredibly beautiful and spectacular and great to admire it in the afternoon as well as at night when they are decorated with artistic lights. Another recommended way to enjoy a spectacular view of the city is to take the Vladivostok funicular to the Orlinoye Gnezdo (Eagle’s Nest) viewing point - the highest point in the historical part of city. In addition, the new cable-stayed bridge over the Eastern Bosporus grants access to even more panoramic views on Frunzensky Island.
