At one time, Vladisvostok was one of the strongest coastal fortresses in the world, and the concrete structures used to fortify the city can still be seen at the base of mountains, along local roads and in the seaside.

Not a good idea from a museum care standpoint, but they let you climb on and around the historic weapons on site, as well as the fort.

Although weather was atrocious the day we visited enjoyed this tremendously. Good selection of military vehicles (albeit some in poor shape) and guns. Includes an indoor museum which was part of a comprehensive system of military tunnels.

Overlooking the bay (and an Olympic Centre of Excellence for swimming and athletics) this is a nice collection of weapons of WW1, WW2 and the Sixties and well worth a visit.

The weapons may not very attractive, but the sea view is very good. A small museum / exhibition is inside there.

The entrance fee was slightly expensive compared to other attractions (200 RUB per person), however with low expectations I was really surprised at all the machines and tanks/missiles parked there. You can climb onto the machines to take pictures, and it was really cool being...More

As an ex Navy guy i found the fortress very interesting if a bit cramped. If you cant speak Russian you'd best bring a guide as all the signs are Russian only as you'd expect. Very close to the boardwalk so easily taken in on...More
