Russian Island, Vladivostok

4.4
#1 of 147 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.

  • Russky island is located in the city of Vladivostok, but it is a very special place, and he has a special history. With the founding of the city until the 90-ies. Of the 20th century the island was virtually closed territory with military garrisons and virtually untouched nature. After the island was opened to the public, began his "Mastering" residents and guests of the city. The island can be reached in 45 minutes by ferry, which at the height of the summer season, it was necessary to take by storm. But anyone who is able to do on the island waiting for clean warm sea, an abundance of mushrooms, assorted wild forest. After the Russian bridge was built on the island, tourists flocked to cars. Picture greatly changed the construction of the Federal University of the island came to "civilization". Although now is not the same island that once was, here you can still find plenty of good places for recreation, particularly in its southern and South-western coast. On an ordinary bus, which runs rarely and poorly, you can reach the ship's Bell Bay and Bay of the Governor. You can just go out somewhere in the middle of the route, on the territory of one of the old military towns, look at surviving late 19-the beginning of 20 c. the main historical attraction of the island, now battery Voroshilov transformed in Museum.
