VLADIVOSTOK ATTRACTIONS

 Vladivostok Train Station. 
 The Vladivostok Train Station is built in Russian architectural style of the 17th century, modeled after the Yaroslavsky Railway Station in Moscow (the beginning of the Trans-Siberian Railroad - the world's longest railway). You will see the last milestone of the Trans-Siberian Railroad with the inscription on it: “Here is the terminus of the Great Trans-Siberian Railroad. Distance to Moscow is 9288 km.” This is where the railroad ends, and those willing to continue their travel can take a boat from the marine terminal just across the tracks from its railroad counterpart.

 Vladivostok Central Square.

The main square of the city, site of public holiday celebrations. See Primorye Administration and the Krai Duma buildings as well as the monument to the Fighters for the Soviet Power in the Russian Far East, which has been the main monument of Vladivostok over the years of Soviet regime (you could see it on all Vladivostok postcards printed then). Apart from a monument to Soviet war heroes, the square is the site of public holidays celebration.
 
 
 
 Triumphal Arch.
The Arch was built in 1891 in honor of the cesarevich Nikolai, future last czar of the Russian Empire. In about 1930 the arch was demolished like many other monuments having any connection to the czarist regime. And only in 2003, the year of Nicholas’s 135th anniversary, the arch was restored to take its place among the most beautiful city attractions.
 
 
 
 
Korabelnaya Naberezhnaya (“Naval Embankment”).
The memorial complex at Korabelnaya Naberezhnaya commemorates the naval glory of Vladivostok. You will see a concrete bowsprit
symbolizing Manchur, the first Russian boat to visit Golden HornBay (the ship allegedly anchored in this very place). There is also the Krasny Vympel, a tiny naval schooner which held high proudly the Russian flag in the early 1920s; the WWII Submarine C-56, which is open for visitors and the Eternal Flame. Hundreds of names of Vladivostok KIA seamen are inscribed on black marble slabs near the memorial fire. 
 
Embankment at Sportivnaya Harbor.
Strolling down the new pedestrian street totally remodeled in 2003 (called by locals “Arbat” after the famous street in Moscow) you will get to the waterfront at the foot of Tiger Hill. It attracts visitors and Vladivostok residents with the view of the Amursky Bay, a Dolphinarium and an Oceanarium featuring a varied collection of denizens of the deep in its great aquariums. The adjoining building, which also faces the waterfront, contains a set of gymnasiums, swimming pools and basketball and volleyball courts. The townspeople come here in the evenings and at weekends to walk along the sea, meet with friends or get some rest in one of the cafes. The round building of Ocean Cinema sits in the middle of the Tiger Hill, while the hill itself is nearly smothered in hotels overlooking the Amursky Bay.
 
The view of Vladivostok.
 Come here to enjoy the best view of Vladivostok from the top of the Eagle’s Nest (Orlinoye Gnezdo) Hill, the highest point of the city (702 feet). You may get up the hill by funicular rail (cable car), constructed in 1962 – there are only 2 of the kind in Russia. See the fascinating panorama of Golden Horn, Amursky, and Ussuriisky Bays and Russian Island. On to the Commercial Port, Fishing Port, docks, and sea terminals. If you have plenty of time at your disposal you may visit other viewpoints in Vladivostok offering views of other local sites.
There are far more interesting places in Vladivostok (especially in historic downtown), each having its style and history – GUM department store building, Y. Brynner’s house, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Nevelskoy monument, Post Office building, Orthodox St. Nicholas Church, etc. - you may see them all during our 3-hour City Tour.
