The opening of the ferry line from Vladivostok (Russia) to Sokcho (the Republic of Korea) is scheduled for June 1, as the Temporary Acting Governor of the Primorsky Territory Andrei Tarasenko reported on Wednesday at the VIII Russian-Korean Forum in Vladivostok.

      “In 2017 the Primorsky Territory was visited by more than 100,000 citizens of the Republic of Korea, which is twice as much as in 2016. Beginning from June 1 of this year, it is planned to launch a ferry line between Vladivostok and Sokcho, so the tourist flow in both directions will certainly grow”, the Head of the region believes.

      Vladivostok, the capital of the Primorsky Kray (Primorye or Maritime Territory) is one of the most beautiful cities in Russia. Home base to the Russian Pacific Fleet, the city was closed to all foreigners from 1958 until 1991. Modern Vladivostok is looking to develop rapidly as Russia’s money-making, fast-spending, high-living commercial and financial center. Businesses from all over the world have flooded in to take advantage of the city's position as a crossroads of Northeast Asia. As one of only four major seaports, with extensive fishing rights, it also has tremendous potential for economic growth. Vladivostok is Russia's window to Asia, as it is located less than 100km east of the Chinese border, and just across the Sea of Japan from the main Japanese island of Honshu. Vladivostok's unique geographical location is of great interest to developers of international and domestic trade. Vladivostok is now one of the most important regional centers in Russia. The city receives visitors from all over the world, hoping to find here unforgettable impressions and new business partners.


      Vladivostok has more than 130 monuments and memorial buildings, which can be related to the city’s cultural heritage.. The earliest monument, dedicated to Admiral Nevelskoi, was erected in 1897, and the last monument commemorating the heroic deeds of Russian border guards was unveiled in 1997. Marine Cemetery has a fine memorial area, with a monument to the cruiser Varyag, a symbol of Russian seamen's heroism in the Russo-Japanese war. A wooden statue of three dolphins near the Seamen's Assembly hall commemorates another kind of courage and human greatness. A Canadian sculptor represented in wood the gratitude of dolphins that were saved by Russian seamen from their ice-bound prison in the Northern Pacific.
