Vladivostok, a port city located on the bank of the Sea of Japan’s Amur Bay, is one of the largest cities in Russia’s Far East. It serves as both the centre of business collaboration for the region and a travel destination for tourists from around the world. Here there is a view of the sea from almost every home and fishermen set off for work long before the sun rises with harbour ports processing thousands of tonnes of fish every day.

In Vladivostok young boys dream of being ship captains. From the moment of the city’s founding it has served as the country’s outpost on the Pacific coast, a fortress and base for the Russian Navy. The city’s name is also quite symbolic, translating to mean «Owner of the East». Tune in to RTG TV’s new film to learn about this modern megopolis, an amphitheatre nestled among hills and islands.
