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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Russky is great for mountain biking on numerous dirt roads and forest paths. Competitions are often held. You can easily take a bike to FEFU rental and go for a drive. Examples of cycling routes from FEFU:
If you like light outdoor sports you can take a kayak in the Novik sports base Hire costs 500 rubles per hour. Phone: +7 (423) 200-35-22
Also SUP riding are popular (standing on a board with a paddle). SUP lovers gather in various beautiful places, in calm weather. You can rent a board, approximately 1500 rub. and ride with a group and instructor. You need to arrange in advance by phone. All this can be done without preparation.
To stay on island Russky - it seems to me an interesting idea. You can, for example, spend several days here, and the rest of the time in the city center. You will save time on transport and calmly walk to interesting places
Asphalt road "Universitetskiy prospekt" runs only along a small part of the island, so there are only 3 hotels on Russky with normal transport accessibility.

Recreation center combined with the sports center "Center for rowing sports Russky Island" On the territory there is a mini promenade and an excellent path for walks along the sea.
