Vladivostok

Vladivostok ©
Often compared to San Francisco and Naples, the sprawling eastern city of Vladivostok serves as the largest Russian port on the Pacific Ocean.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sat): admire the landmark architecture of Railroad Terminal, don't miss a visit to Golden Bridge, then head off the coast to Russian Island, and finally take in the views from Russky Bridge. On the 2nd (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: make a trip to Svetlanskaya Street, don't miss a visit to Tsesarevich Embankment, then get engrossed in the history at S-56 Submarine Museum, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Eagle's Nest Mount.

To find other places to visit, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Vladivostok trip itinerary maker website.

Traveling by flight from Khabarovsk to Vladivostok takes 4 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. In September in Vladivostok, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
