Russky Island in Vladivostok - sights and places to relax

Now you can safely come to Russky Island by city bus on the Russian Bridge. The island has several good sights : the FEFU campus with a promenade, the Primorsky Oceanarium, the Novik recreation center, beaches and the remains of numerous   fortifications of the Vladivostok military fortress.

FEFU University Campus

In 2012, a forum of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC Summit) was held in Vladivostok. A meeting of representatives of 21 countries took place on Russky Island in the new campus of the Far Eastern Federal University built for this event.  The modern campus soon turned into a tourist attraction and a popular holiday destination, thanks to a well-equipped promenade with a park and excellent infrastructure.

Primorskiy Aquarium - the main attraction of the island

The new beautiful Seaside Aquarium is very popular among residents of Vladivostok and tourists. Be sure to leave time for a walk along the promenade near the aquarium.

Military fortress Vladivostok

Be sure to visit the museum Voroshilov Battery and the restored Novosiltsev Battery with breathtaking sea views. You will touch the Vladivostok Fortress and be surprised at military technology and the beginning of the last century.  100 years ago Vladivostok was one of the most technologically advanced and impregnable military fortresses in the world. The island has left a large number of abandoned military units and destroyed barracks, reminiscent of the history and military past of the island.

Russky Island Beaches

Examples of landscaped beaches with garbage collection. I like to come to the beach before dinner: there are no traffic jams, few people and it’s not hot.

On wild beaches with easy access, often a lot of trash. Some interesting beaches need a long drive on a bad road.

Cape of Tobisin

After the construction of the bridge, this is the island’s most popular natural landmark. Easy to reach by car. Easy to stroll and enjoy the wonderful sea views. There are usually a lot of people on the weekend, plan a trip in the morning.
