In 1944 S-56 was awarded with the Order of the Red Banner.
After that you will walk to the Nickolas Triumphal Arch situated nearby. This is a really remarkable place because it was constructed to welcome the crown prince of the Russian Empire during his visit to Vladivostok on the occasion of opening the world famous Trans-Siberian Railway. It was demolished in the Soviet times and reconstructed in 1998 with the help of old photos. The renewed Arch was officially opened in 2003.
