Interesting tour to the historical quarter of Vladivostok called "Millionka".
In the late 19th century in the center of Vladivostok there spontaneously grew a quarter, which became home to many Chinese. It soon got the name Millionka, because many people (“millions”) lived here. In a few years the quarter developed into the “city within a city.” There are numerous intricate alleys, buildings for every taste and color without any unified architectural concept. Millionka was famous for smuggling, opium dens, illegal gambling business. In the mid-30s of the 20th century, it was decided to eliminate Millionka. The Chinese were settled in other areas, becoming workers and civil servants.
