Situated in the eastern part of Russia, Vladivostok is one of the most picturesque and attractive cities in Russia. Today it is a fabulous modern city that draws attention of travelers from all over the world by its unique nature, lovely sceneries, loose military-historical monuments and unique shade of sea romance. You can watch the sun set over the frozen Golden Horn Bay, climb the city's beautifully layered volcanic hills, and view architecture from different eras, from old wooden homes to shiny new office buildings. Vladivostok is a very special city. Founded on the junction of land and sea, Europe and Asia, it is strikingly different from most Russian cities. First of all, it is notable for unique geographical location and specific relief. It's no wonder that Vladivostok is called a solid observation platform: it is the breathtaking panoramas opening from the height of the hills that constitute the main attraction of the Primorsky Krai's capital.
