Vladivostok, Russia
3 September 2012

The Sportivnaya Harbor area is in the Amurky bay side of Vladivostok. It’s a beautiful place for a stroll and a possible swim in the bay during summer. The “Arbat” (Admirala Fokina Street) located near the harbor is a pedestrian street with fountains, benches and Gothic-styled lanterns.

Rebuilt in 1912, the Vladivostok Railway Station is in the same style as Yaroslavsky railway station in Moscow 9288km away.

Right opposite the Vladivostok railroad terminal stands the statue of Vladimir Lenin in Aleutskaya Street, one of the city’s oldest streets. Unveiled in 1930, this monument of Lenin in Vladivostok is just one in almost every city of the former Soviet Union.
