  • Nice little lighthouse, located at the end of the world in Vladivostok. "Walk on water" to achieve it. A bunch of rocks slightly under water. A must see when you come here.

  • Easily accessible from the Centre to the stop "grey horse" on the bus. Note that then have to go on the 30-40 minutes uphill from the mountain. Also, if the path to the lighthouse will have to go through the flooded, ankle-deep in water. A beautiful place. There are several cafes nearby.

  • Tokarevskij lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in the far east of Russia. Founded in the year 1876 Tokarevsky lighthouse. Named after the homonymous promontory described in 1862-1863 Gg. members of the expedition under the leadership of Lieutenant Colonel V.m. KFSh Babkina. At the same time, named after V.m. Babkinym by the name of his friend Captain KFSh M.y. Tokarevsky. About Lighthouse Tokarevsky pilot writes: "Cape Tokarevsky-South-western extremity of the peninsula Sky-located in the 5 k to the SSW from Cape Rosseta. Cat Tokarevsky length 4.3 KB is a rocky spit, diverges to S of Cape Tokarevsky. Swimming Tokarevskim fairway boatmasters must be prepared, they must be a high level of shturmanskoj training. Passage Tokarevskim fairway to foreign vessels is only allowed with a pilot on board. Well, the first Assistant for the skippers will, of course, good old Lighthouse Tokarevsky. Initially, the lighthouse was used as a source of light that torch, acetylene caretaker of the lighthouse lit after dusk. Delivery of acetylene cylinders and equipment carried out majachnikami. For convenient communication with the Tower of the lighthouse and the Lighthouse Service was built the bridge, which connected it with the lighthouse at Cape Town Tokarevskij. In 30-ies of the 20th century, the lighthouse was equipped with electric light source, and the bridge stretched cable. Time and the sea destroyed a bridge (from Tokarevskoj cat were only rusty iron bars) and damaged electrical cable. Since the beginning of 90-ies of the signal installation is running on batteries, which are delivered twice a week majachnikami. In the new century have returned to the past-the lighthouse was left without a bridge and industrial power.
