Day 2The Central Square will be the spot you will start the excursion from. In the center of it you can find the monument to the Fighters for the Soviet Power, the biggest one in the Russian Far East. This Square got its modern look in the beginning of the 1960-s and became one of the main calling cards of the city. We invite you to start your tour day from the place that unifies citizens thanks to
numerous festivals and fairs held here!
Would you like to visit one of the strongest marine fortresses? The Vladivostok Fortress will be the next place in the city you will observe. This is a complex of long-term fortification constructions. It also was one of few marine fortresses with reliable defense from the land side. You will observe the object that didn’t lose its military importance for decades!
Next, you will have a chance to greet Vladivostok from the top. We invite you to the most popular city viewpoint, the Eagle’s Nest Hill. From here you can enjoy views of the Golden Horn bay, the Golden bridge and beautiful panorama of the city. The night scene is particularly impressive.
Continuing the excursion you will see S-56 submarine from outside and inside. It is a museum at present but it used to be operable during the Second World War. This museum is a must for tourists because many parts of the submarine were saved in their original
form, and this is your chance to feel the atmosphere of that remarkable period.
Just a few steps from the submarine you will find the Triumphal Arch which was constructed as a welcome present for the crown prince Nickolas when he visited Vladivostok in 1891. Let’s observe the historical Arch and enjoy its classical architecture that was often used for Russian constructions of the end of the 19th-the beginning of the 20th centuries.
It’s time for lunch now. You will be transported to one of Vladivostok restaurants and enjoy delicious dishes of Russian cuisine. You’ve always dreamt about traditional Russian soup, like borshch or ukha? Or maybe you wanted to taste pelmeni or beef stroganoff? Everything’s possible! Your lunch will include a fresh salad, a soup, the second course and some dessert.
Having enjoyed lunch you are invited to observe beauty of the Russian Orthodox church, the Pokrovsky cathedral, which is located in the similarly-named park. It was destroyed in the Soviet period and renewed later, but now it looks completely the same as it used to. It is possible to go inside when there are no worships.
How about getting acquainted with some objects built not long ago? The Golden bridge and the Russky bridge were built in 2012 on the occasion of APEC 2012. The Golden one is named so because it is located over the Golden Horn bay. The Russian bridge leads to Russky Island and is colored like the Russian flag in white, blue and red.
By the Golden and Russky bridges you will get to Russky Island. It is famous as one of the most popular resting places among Vladivostok citizens. You will be lucky to observe such APEC 2012 objects as the campus of the Far-Eastern Federal University, the Primorsky Aquarium, wonderful Primorsky nature and also take memorable photos.
The Voroshilovskaya Battery is one more spot of Russky Island. It was used for defending Vladivostok till 1997 and became a museum in 1998. It is known as one of unique fortification constructions of the world and a miracle of engineering. Let’s visit the military object that had such great historical importance in the past!
Having enjoyed scenes of Russky Island it would be nice to relax and have dinner in one of the city seafood restaurants. It’s your chance to taste King crabs or other fresh seafood dishes. You will be pleasantly surprised with unusual atmosphere, diverse menu and delicious meal.

After arriving back to Vladivostok you will visit the unusual place - GUM (the department store). This is the oldest trading enterprise of the Russian Far East where you can find clothes produced by local designers. It is also a monument of architectural importance and one of the most beautiful antique buildings of the city.
Let’s continue the excursion around Vladivostok outlets and visit a traditional market. Such places used to be the only outlets where Russian people bought food, clothes and other things necessary for everyday life. Nowadays Russians prefer modern convenient supermarkets but it will be interesting for you to visit a traditional trading enterprise that played such important role in the past.
