Island "Russky" is a fully militarised zone for most of the past 150 years, this big island just offshore has been reinvented as a business and academic centre and is home to the sprawling Far Eastern Federal University campus and the new Oceanarium. There's great tourism potential here, not least for some excellent beaches as you go deeper and deeper into the island and away from the city, but at the moment Russky Island is very much a DIY attraction. The tour gives a possibility to see the ground fortress’ features as well as underground quarters and casemates. You will be also impressed by fantastic landscapes and the view to the city from the boat.
