#8 of 38 in Sightseeing in Vladivostok
Landmark Tourist Spot
Explore the shops, restaurants, and historic buildings lining Svetlanskaya Street. Originally called Amerikanskaya Street after the Corvette Amerika (a steam corvette built in New York City in 1857), the street was renamed in 1873 in honor of the frigate that brought Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich of Russia to the city for a visit. Most of the wooden buildings erected along the street between the 1860s and the 1880s are no longer standing and have been replaced by modern buildings. Traffic can be heavy, so it's better to get there via public transportation and then explore on foot. Make Svetlanskaya Street a centerpiece of your Vladivostok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Vladivostok vacation planner.

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.
