We have traveled on a few Funicular around the world: Paris, Wellington, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Sydney and now Vladivostok. Well worth the price and the best way to get to the top of the hill to observe the bridge and city. I love all the details and grand old feel of this Funicular.

You go up. Or down. It's cheap. Not too impressed by this but you have a nice view from the top station.

After a long walk from the city to the Eagle's Nest Mount and checking out the fabulous views, we decided to take the Funicular down. Good fun and so cheap – you have to pay in roubles. Short ride but good to add to our experiences whilst in Vladivostok.

It's like a mini version of the one in HK. Sure not that high and steep.. And you don't get the same view.. but nice way of transportation to the top (eagle's place I think the call it). And you don't have to stand in que for 1.5 hour like in HK 😊

A few students on board. This was the easy option of getting to the top of the hill and back. 12 Rubles each way. West to have small change from the polite young man operating the funicular.

Cheap as chips! Get to the top and wander up a little further for some great views of the city. From what I have read it is one of only 2 in Russia (the others in Sochi)

I grew up in Pittsburgh which still has two of these, although we call them inclines. Fastest way to get to the Eagle's Nest overlook and a fun ride as well

The whole trip last 2 min and cost 11 roubles so if you decided to get a nice view of the city from the hill definitely go by Funicular
