Vladivostok is a city with a population of about 600 thousand people and a major seaport located in the Far East of Russia. It is the administrative center of Primorsky Krai and the last station of the Trans-Siberian Railway.

The city is located on the Muravyov-Amursky Peninsula and the islands in the Peter the Great Bay of the Sea of Japan. The military post of the Russian Empire called “Vladivostok”, which means “holding the east”, was founded in 1860. In 1880, it received the status of a town. Photos by: Slava Stepanov.
