Stop At: Railroad Terminal, Railroad Square, Vladivostok Russia
Traveling in the Primorsky Territory, it is difficult to bypass the railway station of Vladivostok - one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in the city. The station is the end point of the Trans-Siberian Railway connecting Moscow and Vladivostok. The Trans-Siberian Railway, or, in the old manner, the Great Siberian Path, is the longest railway in the world, its length is 9288 kilometers. The history of the railway station dates back to 1891, when the first stone was laid with the participation of the Tsarevich (later Emperor) Nicholas II. Already on November 2, 1893, the opening of the railway communication on the route Vladivostok - Ussuriysk took place, and in 1897 trains went to Khabarovsk. Today at the railway station of Vladivostok, you can admire the tiles and frescoes, see the old locomotive and milestone with the “final” kilometer, as well as walk along the centuries-old pavement laid here especially for the arrival of Tsarevich Nicholas.

Stop At: Vladivostok Fortress, Batareinaya St., 4A, Vladivostok 690091 Russia
Monument of military history and architecture of federal significance, defensive structures of Vladivostok today can only be discerned outlines on the tops of the hills, along roads, on the seashore. They have long been not used for their intended purpose, and therefore have lost their once formidable appearance. Although a hundred years ago, the citadel, erected by Russian engineers and builders, had no world analogues and was considered the most impregnable sea fortress. About 400 fortifications, strongholds and coastal batteries, equipped with 1.4 thousand guns, were placed on 400 square kilometers. The history of the fortress began with the creation of a small naval station in the Far East. To this end, on July 2, 1860, a landing force commanded by ensign Nikolai Vasilyevich Komarov landed in the Golden Horn Bay. For four months, a small detachment built a wooden outpost, barracks and various economic buildings.

Stop At: S-56 Submarine Museum, Korabelnaya Embankment, Vladivostok Russia
Like most maritime cities, Vladivostok erects monuments dedicated not only to people, but also to ships. Perhaps the most interesting among them is the S-56 submarine. The building of a diesel-electric Soviet S-class submarine S-56 (“S” stands for “Srednyaya”, which means “medium” in Russian) began in Leningrad (now known as St. Petersburg) and was completed in Vladivostok by the Dalzavod Ship Repair Center. She was launched and commissioned in October 1941. A year later, the sub made an unprecedented move for duty to the Northern Fleet — crossing both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.In the north, the S-56 successfully fought against a fascist’s fleet. She engaged in eight military campaigns, sunk four targets (two warships and two cargo ships), and damaged numerous other targets. In 1944, the sub was awarded the ‘Order of the Red Banner’, and in 1945 she was honored with the prestigious ‘National Guard’ title. The S-56 is believed to be the most successful Soviet submarine that fought in World War II. Today the Soviet S-class submarine S-56 is one of the highlights of the “Military Glory of the Pacific Navy Fleet” memorial complex. It is also listed as a branch of the Military Historical Museum of the Pacific Navy Fleet, meaning that her service, despite decommissioning, continues. The original interior of the submarine’s central and bow compartments is well preserved, so one can see real sailors’ bunks, peer inside the torpedo tube, and look out through the periscope. They say that during the war, the “Fifty-Sixth” was declared dead 19 times, yet she always returned; and now she is unsinkable forever.
