Russian Island, Vladivostok

4.4
#1 of 142 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.

  • The Russian island is worth as much by what it contains is to go there. Cable-stayed bridges to cross are sumptuous and the views that they allow. The scenery of the island is wild in winter. Frozen sea, little wind that chills. The Oceanographic complex worth to him alone. We cross a lot of students a little isolated on a huge campus. Corner of the Russian Far East has discovered.

  • Russky Island, is a place where you can combine both car trips to beautiful places and cycling and hiking. Many capes and bays, accessible beaches and historic sites. A very interesting Aquarium, campus FEFU, Novik Park and many other places.

  • A great place for walking in winter and summer. Magnificent views of the sea and the rocks. At the end of the Cape there is a small plateau with a beacon. The only thing that spoils the impression-it rudeness "dzhipperov" who ride on pedestrian walkways, raised dust in the winter and knead dirt in the summer, thus complicating the pedestrians the opportunity to smooth the passage to points of interest.

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.
