You’ll feel the spirit of the old city while walking around “Millionka” – former china-town and gambling center in the early 20th century. The guide will lead you through the modern Vladivostok with its beautiful sea front and the walking street, where citizens spend their weekends, then you’ll be able to see the city from the bird’s eye view while visiting the most beautiful viewpoint of Vladivostok.
