Russian Island, Vladivostok

(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Easily accessible by car or bus. A good way to Voroshilov battery-very interesting to see. Further go just scared, you can break the machine, but go. Before you can drive from Boyarka and there by barge to reach Popov island and Islands of Reynard.

  • 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 »
  • Pleasantly spent time during these three days while I was traveling on the island I rested, as if he was on vacation. Silence, cleanliness, buses run free, there is a post office, kiostki Cafe, as in. It is not necessary to go anywhere. Hotel Città Studi, with all conditions in the day 1900rub. The weather was sunny. I was 2 February to 6 February.
