Russian Island, Vladivostok

4.4
#1 of 73 in Parks in Far Eastern District
Hop on a bike and cycle around Russian Island, just across the Eastern Bosphorus from Vladivostok. A bridge built in 2012 to connect the island with the mainland now allows for easier access, but the island remains relatively quiet. Locals suggest renting a bike from the Far East Federal University. Ride to the uncrowded beach at Philippovsky Bay and take in the view of the city from across the water.

    Wonderful nature, the military fort of fixation, the beautiful Bay, the road is not true for all machines, but it's worth it! The Oceanarium is a very modern and beautiful promenade University! The island is full of mysteries, trails intersect, are confused and beckon! Before visiting the simply must read Arsenyev, about how they started their journey

    The fortresses are interesting if you are into history. Other than that, there is not much to see on this formerly navy-dominated Island.  more »

    The island is beautiful. Nature shakes European. But there's one detail that can dramatically impair the impression. The island is very difficult to leave when I on the machine. Cape tobizina there is no bus, the nearest bus stop at 5 km, bus 1 times in an hour and a half. Yandex taxi there does not work and they don't stop

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.
