In the morning, right after breakfast, our guide will meet you at the hotel lobby and you will be transported to the mariculture farm on Russky island. This is the farm for cultivating scallops, sea cucumbers, mussels and other sea creatures. Here you will see with your own eyes all necessary cultivation equipment and know everything about its process. After the excursion you will taste dishes from freshly-caught seafood. Please, note that you can choose a bus or a motor boat for transportation to the farm. In case you’re allergic to some seafood, please, inform us in advance.
When you come back to Vladivostok you will visit the Central Square which is deservedly considered the calling card of the city. Exactly here all mass events are usually held, Vladivostok residents arrange their meetings and foreign tourists start the city excursion from. On this square you will also observe the monument which is the biggest one on the Russian Far East.
Right on the square we invite you to visit the Russian souvenir shop. Matryoshka, cheburashka, locally made wooden and glass souvenirs, jewelry and many-many others are collected here! Keep the memory of your trip to Russia!
Just 5 minutes from the shop there is a very unusual museum – the S-56 submarine. It is a museum now but earlier, during the Second World War, it was operable and used for practical purposes. So, you will go inside the real military submarine and feel the atmosphere of that heroic period!
One more historically significant construction you will observe is the Triumphal Arch. When Nickolas, the crown prince of the Russian empire visited Vladivostok in 1891, residents of the city built it as a welcome present for him. It is also believed that if you make a wish inside the Arch it will definitely come true!
Having finished the first part of the excursion you will be transferred to the museum of local bread baking named Vladkhleb. This is the first bread factory of Primorsky region. You will know about the story of the company with the help of sensor screens and photographs. You will drink tea and taste some pastry produced here and take part in the master-class on gingerbread decoration. You can also buy some cakes or pastry here.
Later you will walk along Fokina street which is so beautiful that is often compared with famous Moscow Arbat. Because of its vicinity to the embankment and the sea the views and the sunset are fascinating. Enjoy fountains, nice benches, beautiful lanterns and flowerbeds. This place is popular among young people because it is full of cozy cafes and shops. Street musicians often choose this street as the place for their little concerts.
Fokina street runs to the so-called Millionka – the complex of old city squares built at the end of the 19th – the beginning of the 20th centuries. It used to be the gloomy place with gambling houses, drug dealers and others controlled by the Chinese diaspora. Nowadays it’s a labyrinth of brick constructions attracting a great number of tourists.
Let’s finish your journey with gastro dinner in one of Vladivostok seafood restaurants. In the course of this dinner you will not only taste dishes of Far-Eastern cuisine cooked from local sea products but also know about the cooking process and try some local drinks.
