Vladivostok is the end of the line (or beginning if you travel east to west) for the Trans-Siberian Railroad. Congratulations, you made it all 5,772 miles!! This surprisingly modern port city on the Pacific is the prefect end to such an epic journey. Be sure to check out Svetlanskaya Street, Zolotoy Bridge and Admiralsky Skver Square.
I lived there 3 years and had 2 businesses. It is interesting in a primitive way but not 3rd world. Nothing really beautiful but it is nice to have the ocean all around. Not much for a tourist to do but certainly worth exploring if you are on the Trans Siberian Railway and begin or end your trip there.
Spent a week here with Elder Kenneth Long preparing for a Mission Work under the authority of TLBC in Tacoma, WA. We passed out Gospel Literature in Russian at the train station where the Siberian Express begins and travels across Russia to Moscow.
Beautiful port city on the Pacific side of Russia, Vladivostok has only just opened to the outside world in 1992 after being closed due to its status as an important strategic military post of the Russian Navy. the city today is vibrant, welcoming, and full of fascinating history.
