Arranged in a network around the city, Vladivostok Fortress served as the primary defenses for one of the most important historical positions in the Russian Far East. Wander the extensive fortifications, passing by the multitude of gun emplacements and artillery platforms that would have been used to defend the surrounding strategic waterways. Though constructed beginning in the 19th century, the hulking concrete bastions didn't see combat until the start of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904. Also littered around the area are numerous armored combat vehicles, anti-aircraft guns, and other examples of weaponry. You can drop by the small museum housed in the fortress, displaying a collection of Soviet artifacts and ammunition along with displays about the facility itself presented in English. Keep in mind that most of the sights here are outdoors, so dress accordingly. For Vladivostok Fortress and beyond, use our Vladivostok route website to get the most from your Vladivostok vacation.

  • Very many objects of the fortress. And small redoubts and the giant forts. They are located in different parts of the city of Vladivostok. Any resident faced them willingly or unwillingly. And if you come near, you want to know about anything else, visit the location, view, touch. After all, many buildings for more than 100 years, but a head start will give many buildings that have 5 years old not stood, and State Oh. Oops.
