Vladivostok is the eastern end of the Trans-Siberian railway and headquarters of the Russian Pacific Fleet. Vladivostok today is the Russian outpost on the shores of the Golden Horn Bay, its name means “Rule the East”. The city’s dramatic setting along the hills around the Golden Horn Bay makes it quite attractive. Until 1990 Vladivostok was off-limits to all visitors because of its military and strategic importance as one of Russian key navel ports, but in 2012 it survives a revival after hosting APEC summit. Now ferries link Vladivostok with ports in Japan and South Korea.
