Our guide will meet you at the airport and accompany to the city.
After check-in you will have dinner in your hotel or one of Vladivostok restaurants and try Russian cuisine.
When a new day comes you will have breakfast and start acquaintance with Vladivostok art galleries. First, you will see pictures in the Primorsky regional department of the Union of Russian Artists, history of which started in 1938. The gallery is famous for solo and collective art exhibitions of pictures painted by Primorsky and Russian artists.
The next place where you will have the educational excursion is the Primorsky State Art gallery. It combines art of Western Europe, Primorsky region, Russia and also Russian sculptures dated XIX-the beginning of XX centuries.
Later we invite you for dinner where you can taste Russian cuisine. At first you will be treated with some salad made from fresh vegetables, the one Russians like to cook at dachas (summer houses). You’ve heard about Russian borscht but have never tried it? In one of our restaurants you will have a chance to try either borscht or soup of some other type. The traditional second course like potato with fish or cutlets will be the next treat. You will finish your lunch with some dessert or pastry.
Your excursion around historical spots of Vladivostok will start after lunch, and the Railway station will be the first one. Its construction was initiated by Nickolas II – the Russian Emperor. It is the last point of the Trans-Siberian Railway. The stele with the inscription “9288” was installed here to show the number of kilometers from Moscow to Vladivostok. Here you can also observe the steam train model.
The Marine terminal is located just a couple of minutes from the Railway station. Here you can get a lot of positive emotions thanks to the wonderful view of the Golden Horn bay and lovely promenade.
Later you will get to the Central Square. It is the city calling card and the place gathering residents of Vladivostok as exactly here all mass events are usually held. It has one more name thanks to the monument to the Fighters for the Soviet Power located in the center – the biggest one on the Russian Far East.
At the square you can also visit a shop of Russian traditional souvenirs.
S-56 submarine, which is a museum now, is a must for all tourists coming to Vladivostok. It was operable during the Second World war and many its segments were saved unchanged. Visit this unique place and feel the atmosphere of that heroic period!
It is possible to make your dream come true if you make a wish under the Triumphal Arch! This tradition is well-known among Vladivostok residents. This Arch is famous as a welcome present for Nickolas II – the emperor of the Russian Empire. This is also the example of Russian traditional architecture.
Let’s walk a little along the picturesque Fokina street which is informally called Arbat, just like Moscow street. What makes it so beautiful? Fountains, cafes, benches, lanterns and the view of the sea that can be seen from everywhere in the street!
It’s time to relax and have dinner in one of the city seafood restaurants. Kamchatka crabs, scallops, shrimps – all these sea products cooked according to special recipes are available!
In the evening after dinner you can choose a performance in the theatre, circus or philharmonic. Shows depend on the schedule, so in case there are no performances available we can organize a backstage tour for you.
The next day after breakfast you will continue your excursion around Vladivostok art museums and visit the Raritet antiquarian gallery. It is worth visiting because here you can see artefacts connected with life and culture of Vladivostok, Russia and foreign countries like coins of the Russian Empire, samovars, medals and many other remarkable things.
The last spot where you will enjoy works of art will be the Versal Gallery with the wonderful collection of art works by Primorsky and Russian artists. It is located in the building of Versal hotel which is a monument of classicism architecture. Here you can also buy pictures and Russian souvenirs like matryoshka, national dolls, costumes and many other gifts.
How about tasting and purchasing some sweet souvenirs? Before coming to the airport you are invited to the coffee-house Lakomka where you can drink coffee with some locally produced cake or sandwich. You can also purchase some cake or pastry as a memorable souvenir. If there is enough time it is also possible to visit the bread museum where you will know about the development of baking industry in Primorye.
Before coming to the airport it would be great to visit Russky island. This is home for objects of APEC 2012 – the Primorsky Aquarium and FEFU (the far-Eastern Federal University). You will get there by two bridges – Zolotoy (Golden) and Russky which are APEC objects too. Moreover, this island has wonderful nature so you can take lovely photos.
As soon as the excursion finishes you will be delivered to the airport accompanied by the guide.
