The ride is about 5 minutes. But it is fun. If you missed the view, take a ticket back. It is an old attraction, so the locals feel very proud about it. It is famous, so I would recommend it.

Other than avoiding a walk up the steps, there's no reason to take it. There's no real view of anything on the way up.

Funicular which celebrated the semicentennial anniversary in 2012 is not only convenient and irreplaceable transport for the city with such difficult relief as at Vladivostok, but also one of the most amazing sights of the city. The significance of the funicular was provided by its uniqueness. It is the only similar type of electro transport in the Russian Far East and one of two in the country. It represents two stopping points in the bottom and on the top of Orlinaya hill between which two cars move. They are painted in red and blue and contain up to 40 people. They move on the single-line rail road, parting in the middle of a way.
Total length of the funicular route is a little more than 180 meters, and a height difference between the bottom and top platforms is 70 meters. The car covers all distance less than in two minutes, but it is enough to admire tremendous views of the central part of the city and a picturesque bay Gold Horn. The magnificent panorama opens from the observation deck equipped at the top station of the funicular.

The funicular is quite old but well maintained, and for 8 Roubles per ride, it's a cheap and scenic way to get to the top and access Eagle's Nest Mount for a fabulous view of Vladivostok

The Funicular was closed, and looked like it had been closed for a few months. It is a little hard to find now that the new bridge has been built, and the roads were being dug up around the Funicular.
