Golden Horn Bay, Vladivostok

Walk along the coast, admire the view of the city from a vantage point, or sail into the port, and you'll quickly realize that Golden Horn Bay is the heart of Vladivostok. Named after its counterpart in Istanbul, the 7 km (4.3 mi) long bay is the center of the city's industrial and tourist life. Next to many commercial ships that frequently cross its waters, the bay is also the home of the Russian Pacific Fleet. Keen boat watchers often enjoy sightings of every type of vessel, from luxury yachts to large ocean liners and mighty destroyers. Spanning the bay is the massive Golden Bridge, one of the city's most recognizable sights. On the waterfront you can find many cafes, restaurants, hotels, and other establishments that allow visitors to admire the beauty of the bay. Plan a trip to Vladivostok easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • The angle of Kinkaku Bay from the konose nest observatory is the best, so I tried to get close to the bay, but I couldn't see it up close on the levee. However, the park along the bay is also wonderful, and it is nestled on a bench.

  • When I visited, it was raining heavily. This had a good atmosphere, but it's better to take a walk if it's sunny.

  • You can see the warship nearby. It is a great power. There is also a beautifully paved promenade along the bay, so it is recommended for walking and photography.
