It looks really amazing, viewed from the Eagle Nest, from the shore or from the Golden Bridge. Apart from the natural beauty, you can see some very interesting military ships.

Impressive bridge with views of a busy harbour and city. Unavoidable if you visit Vladivostok. HEavy traffic around it.

This is the main attraction in my opinion. The Golden Bay, the Golden Bridge, and the picturesque views from all angles. Enjoy!

it's beautiful and easy to access. It's not allowed to stop on it and observe the bay from, only on special days. But there are a few points you can access to look at it from aside.
