December 14, 2017 23:24


Vladivostok Fortress is a complex of defensive structures built in the city and its surroundings in late XIX-early XX centuries. It was designed by Russian military engineers, builders, de-miners and soldiers.

Today the complex of fortification constructions of the Vladivostok fortress is a monument of federal significance.

A museum dedicated to the history of Vladivostok Fortress was opened in the city at the “Bezymyannaya” fortress battery on October 30, 1996. The museum exhibits the samples of artillery weapons deployed in 1930s-1990s on the ships of the Pacific Fleet and in coastal defense.

The interior expositions of the museum tell about the history of the city. The main interior exposition is located in 3 separate casemates of the “Bezymyannaya” fortress battery. The sailors of the Pacific Fleet take the oath on the territory of the museum every year (in spring and in autumn).
