I recommend to climb the observation platform of the Eagle's Nest on the funicular and enjoy the excellent panoramic view of Vladivostok. You can come to the view day and evening. If there is no fog, you will see the Golden Horn and Cape Churkin, Cape Egersheld. Take classic photos of the Golden Bridge . In the evening, sunset and night city. The place is located in the city center and is popular with tourists and locals.
To get to the observation deck is best on the cable car (Funicular)
Do not miss the opportunity to ride on a great attraction for the price of ordinary urban transport. Vladivostok funicular performs its transport function and pleases residents and guests of the city with beautiful views. On the cable car, you’ll reach the top station in 2 minutes, and in five minutes on foot you’re already in view Eagle's Nest
There is a famous story like N.S. Khrushchev during his return from his famous trip to the United States in 1959, being impressed, he will order the construction of a funicular in Vladivostok, following the example of the San Francisco cable cars. Construction finished in 1962. The main function of the mountain tram was the transportation of students between academic buildings of the Polytechnic Institute.
If the funicular does not work, you can climb along the parallel stairs in 15 minutes. Rest on the way is not prohibited
When you leave the funicular building, or from the bus (you can also go by bus) you will see at the top a gray unusual building - this is the FEFU building - you need to go there. By the underpass you need to go through the square inside the transportation ring, then go through the second passage to the viaduct. Next you need to go along a bad staircase and along the path to walk on a sidewalk of concrete slabs and walk along it to the viewing platform and the monument to Cyril and Methodius. The whole journey will take you 5-7 minutes .
I repeat that the classic route is to reach the "Polytechnichesky" bus stop on Svetlanskaya street (2 stops from the Center and 3 from Railway Station ) and go up the funicular. But there are other options:
By car you can drive into a small parking lot on the viewport itself. Check-in is on the side of "Gogolya" street with one-way traffic. Turn where the stadium and go around the academic building behind.
By bus to the viewport (more precisely, to the upper station of the funicular) you ca get:
The nearest small grocery stores are located downstairs on Sukhanova Street and Svetlanskaya (Lazo). The nearest large grocery supermarket is far away on Semenovskaya square (Clever House)
Not far from the lower station of the funicular at the "Polytechnichesky" bus stop there is a budget self-service restaurant Republic (Good choice of dishes, including take-away, pancakes, a cafe with good coffee and beer) On Sukhanova there is a cafe "Bakery Michel", Mexican cafe "Burritos".
Upstairs, the wind is usually much stronger, I recommend to take clothes a little warmer, a hat or a hood. Cafe with drinks and food on top of the species is not. There are no toilets either.
Then you can go to the Central Square and Svetlanskaya Street
