    Railway Station

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The railway station is definitely one of Vladivostok's most famous landmarks.
    There's not really that much on the inside of interest, but it is one place that nearly all visitors to Vladivostok will see.

    Internet

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The main post office is just across the road from the main train station, and there is a business office in the same building as the post office where you can access the internet relatively cheaply.

    As of 2011 this facility is still there, although the internet service is hardly speedy.

    by yangshu Written Sep 21, 2008
    shopping street

    Favorite thing: i really meet the problem to communicate in russia. here. local people just speak russian and the signs on the street are russian. i try to speak english to some people, but they only know few words such as "how much?" "how are you?" and chinese only used by chinese, some suveniar seller could speak "100" "200" "renminbi". to vladivostok, you must learn russian.

    Fondest memory: a super big crab.

    Nikolai II Visit Commemorative Monument

    Favorite thing: Located near the Puppet Theatre which is behind the "C-56" submarine museum, this Triumphal Arch is a monument to commemorate the visit to Vladivostok by the Last Romanov Czari Nikolai II in 1891, who arrived in Vladivostok on his way home hurriedly after abandoning his visit to Japan after being injured by local police in the Otsu Incident. The original monument was destroyed in the Russian Revolution and this was restored in Year 2003.

    Oceanarium, Vladivostok

    Favorite thing: OK, so this aquarium is not on the same scale as a grand one we visited in Okinawa, Japan, but the entry fee of this one was 1/10 the cost also.

    Located near Sportivnaya harbour on Ul. Batareynaya

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: See the Golden Horn Bay - the city is blessed with one of the most attractive natural settings I have seen in Russia. Set on a natural harbour, there are often a number of ships to gaze at. This view was taken from the railway station, which is another attractive building inside.

    Fondest memory: Difficult choice:
    - looking back along the railway line that leads via the TransSiberian route all the way back to Moscow
    - sticking my hand into the Amursky gulf (chilly, it was November, after all)

    by paulita1 Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go to the museaum (if they haven't sold their treasures yet.)
    Definitely go to the Army Surplus store. All things Russian Navy Army are there and are fun to collect (uniforms, insignias, etc.)

    Fondest memory: This place is bizarre. The harbor was full of ancient ships, rusting, dilapidated. People live aboard for wont of housing.

    Go have a shot of Stoly. I asked for a screw driver. When I explained that it was vodka and orange juice I got a 12 oz glass of vodka and a can of orange soda! It was really hard to walk after that.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In the Summer time the best thing you can do (and all locals practice this a lot) is to take a boat and sail/cruise to the nearby islands on the sea, enjoy good barbeque, make fishing and have a GOOD glass of wine etc. Shortly-enjoy life. Just make sure that you have HIGHLY protecting suncream with you as even though the sky is cloudy the UV surely catches you. I experienced this in the hard way, that has never happened me earlier.

    by Jenny48 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Taking the fourteen hour ride from Khabarovsk to Vladivstok by train was one of the most exciting parts of the trip. Seeing the Pacific Ocean from another angle was so very beautiful. The City reminded me so very much of my city of birth San Francisco, the hills and the view of the ocean. The dress shops had beautiful and exsquisite clothing,quite fashionable I might add.

    Fondest memory: The people were so kind and generous, the accomodations were nestled far out in the country. I am not one to keep up with the names of hotels, unless they are really americanized. My hotel was a beautiful hotel and very rustic in nature.
