VLADIVOSTOK, RUSSIA — MONDAY, APRIL 22: 6am – 8pm

Vladivostok may be remote, but it has been a strategic spot for Russia since the 19th century. As home of the Soviet Pacific fleet from 1958 to 1974, the city was literally closed to foreigners and non-resident Soviets alike. Plan on a relaxed day casually touring remnants of Vladivostok’s history as a military asset. Consider visiting the old-school natural history museum to learn about the Russian Far East’s peoples, folk ways, and flora and fauna. Wrap the day up with a sampling of the region’s local/crossroads cuisine for an authentic experience of Russia’s rustic Far East outpost.
