Vladivostok has undergone huge transformations since the APEC Summit of 2012. Among these transformations are included modern cable-stayed bridges (one of them, Russky, is one of the longest in the world) and the campus of Far Eastern University.
To finish a great day, we'll have a tour around Russky island, where we'll find some constructions of legendary Vladivostok's fortress. This haunting monuments to a turbulent past have been closed since Soviet times. We'll lift the veil of history to see them in a new light.
