Vladivostok. Russian San Francisco.

Pictures were found and posted in Polish forum by Benediktus.





Niestety nie znam ulic, dlatego bez opisu.

Vladivostok has a lot of potential with its proximity to both the South Korean, Chinese and Japanese market. Is Vladivostok taking advantage of this opportunity?

I was wondering what you meant by Russian San Francisco until I saw the bay and those steep, steep streets!

I have a question that may sound ignorant, but anyway... Once I was watching one of those Lonely Planet programs and the guy went to the Russian Far East. Vladivostok and Petropavlovsk. He mentioned that this whole region (both Vladivostok and Petropavlovsk) suffered with electricity shortages. Is this true? If so, has it already been fixed?

IMO Vladivostok and its region are the greatest cultural shock in the world. Vladivostok looks completely western (or at least European) and their neighbours are like a complete different kind of culture, architecture, religion, etc. It's amazing! Nice pics!

Yes it may have hills and a harbour but come on i think russian san francisco is taking things a bit too far. San francisco is a fantastic beautiful city with plenty to do & Vladivostoc looks dull and boring like most russian cities.

i live near SF. Yes, it's a beautifull city, but there is not that much to do. Not more than in typical Russian city, that's for sure...

Владивосток -Vladivostok


Vladivostok (Russian: Владивосто́к (help·info)) is Russia's largest port city on the Pacific Ocean and the administrative center of Primorsky Krai. It is situated at the head of the Golden Horn Bay not far from the Russo-Chinese border and North Korea. It is the home port of the Russian Pacific Fleet.

And you felt the need to communicate us this emmm... extrem "intelligent" and emmm, ya, "interesting" point of view, because...?

P.S. I personally would recommend you comparting this kind of things more with someone like your psychologist rather than the forum, but... its your life.
