I looked at the Bay from different angles. It looks different from all of them, but nevertheless beautiful. It reminds me of Istanbul. With all the bridges and ships sailing in it.

I arrived in Vladivostock by ferry so spent a while approaching then crossing Golden Horn bay. It's a beautiful bay with lots of islands, birds, dragonflies. Loads of people out in their boats. I think if you haven't arrived by ferry it's worth going out on a harbour cruise.

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.

If the weather is right this place is a great place to just stroll about and enjoy the views. Other attractions are also nearby and you could do it all at the same time on foot.

I was staying 8days in Vladivostok so i had lots time. I jus swung by there and it was quite a place you can chilling out. If you have time, you can take a stroll and get there and check out.

Not verly live - little marine traffic, but boasts a lot of ships, naval and civilian, in different forms and shape, so could be quite interesting for a fan

Golden Horn Bay (Zoltoy Rog in Russian) has amazing sites all around. Russian Pacific Fleet warships parked in the bay, large ferries, fishing boats and the new Zoltoy Rog Most (Golden Horn Bay Bridge). Stay at the hotel Hyundai and ask for a room on the Bay side.

Golden Horn Bay is the heart of Vladivostok. Russian Empire always wanted to own Constantinople with its Goldern Horn Bay but the dream never came true. Unrealeased desire pushed Russia to give the same name to its own bay. The bridge across Golden Horn Bay was built for the APEC summit and now is the main symbol of the city.... More
