Eagle's Nest Mount, Vladivostok

(4.4/5 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.

  • 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 »
  • On the outskirts, without roads and public transport, surrounded by buildings of written-off graffiti, covered with chipped white paint is a monument to the creators of Russian script. Watch him hurt. And here is a view of the Bay is fantastic.

  • It is worth to visit the specific site, if there is time. In addition to how to make a picture on the background of Golden Bridge-there is nothing to do here.
