Eagle's Nest Mount, Vladivostok

(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Admire the scenic view of downtown and the Golden Horn Bay, with its multitude of ships and imposing bridge, from the top of Eagle's Nest Mount. Rising 199 m (653 ft) above sea level, this extinct volcano is a high point in the center of Vladivostok. On its top you'll find a monument dedicated to Saints Cyril and Methodius, the 9th-century Greek missionaries who introduced Christianity and literacy to the Slavs. However, don't expect to see any eagles here. The mount is actually named after a peak in Bulgaria, where the Russian forces defeated the Turks back in the 19th century. The walk up to the top plateau is not too difficult, and there is also a cable car that will take you there for a small fee. Make Eagle's Nest Mount a centerpiece of your Vladivostok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Vladivostok vacation route planner.

  • Not a tram station walks up. Attractions in Vladivostok would not own the main attractions of the place may be. City view and buy and buy a souvenir in the Eagle fortress and shop if you can now hear the end.

  • The floating and the Golden Gate Bridge is visible at a glance, Vladivostok city, such as Trillian. It's hard even to walk a bit, you can go by bus. And escalate the expression (?) car as well and good but a really nice at night the weekly views.
