Vladivostok, Russia


Central Square

Introduction

Vladivostok is Russia's main east coast seaport and home to Russia's Pacific naval fleet.

Visas

Unlike St Petersburg, cruise ship visitors do not require a visa to visit Vladivostok and you don't need to be on a tour from a government authorized company.

Where You're Docked

Cruise ships dock at Morskoy Vokzal (Sea Terminal) beside town. The terminal is adjacent to the railway station and main post office.

Money & Tipping

Russia's currency is the Russian Rouble (RUB) though tourist shops and markets may take Euros. A small tip (around 10%) is appreciated when dining in restaurants. You will find currency exchange places along Aleutskaya St as you walk from the terminal into town.

Local Transportation

Vladivostok's central area is fairly small and easily walkable from the cruise terminal.
