1. Vladivostok: Cruise Trip
Although not as well-known as Moscow or St. Petersburg, Russia's far-eastern city of Vladivostok is full of charm and unique culture. Stroll along the Vladivostok Embankment, the city's waterfront walkway where you can catch a glimpse of the fountain at its central point lit up in blue and green. Vladivostok lays on the Golden Horn Bay in Russia on the North Pacific. More than 9,000 km from the capital, this city is open to western and eastern influence. Its renowned Golden Horn harbor is Russia’s largest Pacific Coast seaport. Do you know that Tokarevsky Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses in the city? From the boat, you will see three harbors in one: the fishing harbor, the naval base, and the commercial harbor. Your local guide will reveal secret stories about the Submarine museum- S-56, the history, and the culture of the city. Check out Vladivostok Fortress, whose placards tell the story of the Russo-Japanese War. Visit the museum erected to honor Vladimir Arsenyev, a famous Russian explorer.
