Russian Island, Vladivostok

4.4
#1 of 72 in Parks in Far Eastern District
Island Nature / Park
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.

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.

  • Quite a beautiful island but a lot of it is neglected and left to rot. Good place to explore abandoned places if that is what you are into, but a little hard to get around.  more »
