    Day 19: Vladivostok City Tour
    After traveling through 8 time zones and covering around 6,600 miles (10,600 km) along the epic Trans-Siberian route, early in the morning your train finally arrives in Vladivostok - one of the most significant Russian ports located on the western shores of the Sea of Japan.

    Upon arrival you meet your guide at the train station and enjoy an exciting sightseeing tour around the most interesting city attractions. You start with exploring the Vladivostok Railway Station that is the terminus of the Trans-Siberian railroad.

    You then drive across the Russky Bridge, the world's longest cable-stayed bridge, to reach Russky Island. An integral part of the Vladivostok's history, the island attracts numerous tourists with charming Primorye nature, dozens of picturesque bays, ​majestic coastal rocks and a number of unique military fortifications. While being on the island, you have a great chance to visit one of them - «Novosiltsevskaya battery» fortification. Beautiful panoramic view of the bridge opens from there.

    Next you drive to the Eagle's Nest observation point to get a magnificent bird’s-eye view over the city and Golden Horn Bay. The highlight of your tour is visit to Submarine S-56 which successfully fought against a fascist’s fleet during WWII.

    After the tour you are transferred to your hotel for check-in and have the rest of the day free.

    This is the final day of your Epic Trans-Siberian train tour! Following breakfast you check out from the hotel and your guide transfers you to the airport for your flight back home. We wish you a safe flight and hope to work on your future trips!
