Welcome to the capital of Primorye! Vladivostok is one of the most picturesque and interesting cities in the Russian Far East. During the Soviet time the city was the home base of the Pacific Russian military fleet and thus entrance for international travelers was not allowed. Free access was given to tourists and visitors only in 1992.
The old Vladivostok Fortress is the city’s most popular and distinct sight. This complex of unique fortifications is rightfully considered one of the most powerful coastal fortresses in the world. The construction of the fortress started in the late 19th century: after the fall of Port Arthur during the Russian-Japanese war of 1904–1905, the Vladivostok defense fortifications had to be improved..
The Vladivostok Fortress is a giant compound that includes numerous facilities and units. They are scattered over a vast territory, from the suburbs of Vladivostok to the islands of the Peter the Great Bay. You can stumble on fortifications everywhere in Vladivostok.
