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.

  • Write on russky island in the format of the reviews on TripAdvisor strange occupation. But share your impressions about this beautiful place still stands. Russky island is famous for the fact that it was an outpost of Russia in the far East and it predetermined its fate in terms of development of the territory. In short, before the collapse of the USSR, russky island was closed to the public and located on its territory military garrison, military families and the penal battalion. I brought sometimes go past quarry where shtrafniki worked. Now on the site nearly shtrafbaty same barracks built a recreation center with the romantic name "White Swan". Here's a story in brief

  • Only by car, preferably without children, m.b. with teenagers. Our little princesses (4 and 8), it was not very interesting. With the high points of the magnificent panorama on the Bay Islands, there are forts Vladivostok. And where you can admire the work of metal ".

  • Crisscrossed this on a machine with children, visited the University, "voroshilovskuju battery". Enjoy wonderful views of the sea, stillness, peace, nature. On the bridge, of course, easily accessible and at its auto and bus. We hope in the next coming and Oceanarium catch open! Our youth bypassed the whole island on foot with backpacks, impressed!
