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.
