Eagle's Nest Mount, Vladivostok

4.4
#5 of 140 in Sightseeing in Far Eastern District
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
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.

  • Best place to get a beautiful view of the city especially when Vladivostok is all lit up at night. A must do for any travelers in Vladivostok.  more »
  • Maybe the best view of the city from there. Not difficult to get there. If you're in Vladivostok for not that many days, you can see most of the city from there.  more »
  • There's not much more that you can put. Get the Funicular up, only 11 Roubles, and take in the views of the city. We walked back down the the waterfront,  more »

Where to stay in Vladivostok

One of the most popular destinations of the Russian Far East, Vladivostok offers its visitors plenty of options for a place to stay. You'll find many centrally located hotels, as well as those in residential areas; and because of the city's bay location, sea-view rooms are not an uncommon feature. Several high-end hotels cater to well-heeled travelers, while those with more modest budgets will also find plenty of options, including smaller hotels, bed and breakfasts, and hostels. If you prefer self-catering accommodation, look for apartments in some of the most popular locations around the city.
