What we will do

Your bus will take you to the bottom of “Eagles Nest”. The nickname “Eagles nest” view point was earned due to the fact that when the first settlers climbed the top of the hill they found an eagles nest with the younglings inside. The viewpoint provides vistas across the waters and to the hilly islands scattered over the Peter the Great Bay.Youll have time to enjoy a souvenir shop to browse for and purchase handmade folk art and crafts. You tour will take you along the Golden bridge, a unique construction across the Golden Horn Bay which provides reliable transport connection between the city districts and  the network of federal auto roads of the country. A photo stop at the Central square is one of the must in Vladivostok. Central square is officially known as the "Square of the Fighters for Soviet Power in the Far East." In the center stands a monument which central focus is a trumpeter - the symbol of Vladivostok - often depicted on souvenir pins, books and brochures. The Primorye State Art Gallery is just a few minutes walking from the Central square. Examine the halls of The Primorye State Art Gallery which is often called the cultural gem of the Russian Far East, since it keeps the unique collection of Russian, Soviet and West European paintings dated to 18th-20th centuries, and has very valuable decorative and applied arts collection. Moreover, youll admire the old city romances performed by a well-known singer of Vladivostok. Then you`ll cross the street and visit Arseniev museum, the oldest and the largest museum on the Far East and in the Eastern Siberia that is situated in city's historical center.

The building has also housed the Siberian Trade Bank, a variety of stores and apartments. In 1930 it was given to the Pacific Research Institute of Fishery and Oceanography. It focuses on area studies. The rooms of the museum show the vast collection of valuable materials about Primorsky Krai's rich history and the cultures of indigenous peoples inhabiting Primorye. The museum collections highlight the history of exploration and setting of the region, and the more recent history.
