Military Highlights of Vladivostok
Uncover the Vladivostok Fortress Museum, Fort #7 and S-56
You’ll see the military action of Russia from all parts of history in this inclusive tour as you’re taken back in time to when the Fortress of Vladivostok’s guns and weapons guarded the city from harm.
You’ll also visit two of the oldest batteries, built in the 19th Century as well as the submarine S-56 from the more recent World War II.
They all serve now as museums, offering you all the information you could possibly need about the buildings, wars and impressive military action that Russia served.
Also you’ll visit Fort#7, the official name is “The Fort of the Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich,” It was built in 1910 into the side of Mount Toropov, 14 km north of the center of Vladivostok. It’s the western-most fort on the northern defense line, and was designed by an experienced military architect, Vyacheslav Sergeyevich Toropov. Fort #7 has the longest barracks of all 16 forts –150 meters. The main attraction of the fort are the underground tunnels, which have a total length of 1.5 km and connect the fort’s entire defense system, intersecting and then taking off in different directions. It was designed so that riflemen and artillerymen could move quietly from one end of the fort to another, and appear in places the enemy would not expect.
You’ll even see the modern Pacific Navy warships stationed in the heart of Vladivostok, giving you a full experience of the military action from the oldest fortresses to the newest warships, showing you the true impressive power of Russian forces.
