As already mentioned in the blog post about the Azimut Hotel, we spent a day in Vladivostok (Владивосток) end of September.
Vladivostok is a city and the administrative center of Primorsky Krai, Russia, situated at the head of the Golden Horn Bay, not far from Russia’s borders with China and North Korea. The population of the city, according to the preliminary results of the 2010 Census, is 592,069, down from 594,701 recorded in the 2002 Census.
The city is the home port of the Russian Pacific Fleet and the largest Russian port on the Pacific Ocean.
Honestly, I am very positive surprised about Vladivostok. And it was good for me to say yes to this trip. Not at least to get rid of some minor prejudices. Really liked it.
Just want to share some impressions with the following pictures.
Pretty new building across the Hotel.
Nice place with a water fountain.
Open Air cooking :-)
Shashlik with potatoes for 260 RUB (6,50€, $8,30). Delicious!
With a combination of English, some Russian words and signs we actually did not have any real issue getting around. All were very kind.
Sad, that we only had one day, but I’ll try to come back and explore more of Vladivostok and the surrounding area.
