The easiest and cheapest way to join a motley crowd of residents of Vladivostok is to ride with them in public transport. With a guide, you will storm trams, buses and suburban trains, visiting the city from all sides.

 

Your tour begins in Vladivostok central square, an area home to the soviet era monument to the fighters for the soviet power in the Russian Far East, as well as the famous GUM, which many historians believe to be the very first shopping mall in the world. You will proceed to the Arsenyev Local Lore Museum, before then making your way to the railway station. On your way to the station, you will pass the mischievous Chinese Quarter, Millionka, as well as the Arbat walking zone, the two remaining Stalinist Empire style apartment houses (the so-called "Grey Horse") and the birth-house and monument of famous American actor Yul Brinner.

 

Following this, your route will continue to the Eagle Nest view point, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Vladivostok city center. Afterwards, you will advance to the Golden Bridge, which erected over the Golden Horn bay connects the two largest peninsulas of the city, allowing access to the formerly most remote corners of Vladivostok in 5 minutes. On your way you will pass by the modern Opera house, as well as drive by the older districts of the city.

 

Having crossed the Eastern Bosphorus straight between the island and the mainland, you will return to the city center to visit the last highlight of the day: the memorial site at Korabelnaya ("ships") Promenade. This site includes the Guard Torpedo Submarine S-56 museum, the Nikolaevskaya Triumphal Arch, the Eternal Fire and the Stela to the founders of Vladivostok. At this place on the 2nd of July 1860, Russian officers first landed and started the marine base Vladivostok. Nowadays in this spot you can find the headquarters of the Russian Pacific fleet. You can stroll along the promenade watching battle cruisers and private boats, crawl through a real submarine, and don't forget to make a wish right under the triumphal arch, it always works!

 

The Vladivostok tram - is the oldest tram system in the Asian part of Russia, the first tram started on the streets of Vladivostok on October 9, 1912. The history of Vladivostok is inextricably linked with the tram. To date, there is no such type of transport that would serve people for so long, so long was a symbol of the city. Still, 105 years is not only history, but also a century-old anniversary. A tram is the most popular mode of transport. People's accessibility is the most democratic in price. Folk in terms of climatic conditions - when the whole city is in traffic jams, the tram is moving.

 

Vladivostok buses - an interesting story of the evolution of urban transport from the first omnibuses to the present day. At the end of March 1885, the townspeople were amazed by the new mode of transport. On the street appeared omnibus. A carriage for 20 people, harnessed by a pair of horses, dragged on the rise slowly, but it still reliably transported the passengers. Buses in Vladivostok appeared in the 1920s and were, as a rule, second-hand. The park was owned by private traders and various partnerships.

 

Vladivostok suburban train - In 1891, Vladivostok visited by prince Nikolai with his brother George. The railway then only went to Sretensk (Trans-Baikal Territory). And you can not take much by sea, how then can you study the Far Eastern natural resources? The Tsarevich signed a decree on the construction of a railway. In 1960, the first commuter train started from Vladivostok to Nadezhdinskaya station. All-metal carriages carried by electric locomotives.
