" Vladivostok Fortress"
Vladivostok is the administrative centre of our region, a town of enormous beauty and rich history. The capital of the Russian Far East is located on the Muravyev - Amur peninsula and islands in the Gulf of Peter the Great Bay.
Our land with a rich diversity in flora and fauna and lots of historical significant places can be of great interest to the UNESCO organization.
More than 10 sites already included into different protective organization’s lists (the UNESCO one among them) are located on the territory of our region. Among these unique places are the Leopard Land, National Marine Conservation Area, the Vrangelya Island, the Pedan Mountain, and the Vladivostok Fortress.
Vladivostok was granted the status of a fortress in 1889. The latter includes a system of various defensive structures and developed infrastructure. It is a real treasure of the Far East region that has no analogues in the world. Russian architects erected about 130 different powerful forts, strong holds, and batteries, equipped with 1400 weapons in an area of​over 400 square meters. Nowadays it is the only navy fortress in Russia preserved since the 19th century and is a monument of federal significance.
On October the 30th, 1996 on the territory of Vladivostok fortress Battery was opened a museum «Vladivostok Fortress ", dedicated to the history of places of military events. The exhibition tells not only the history of the fortification and artillery but also the history of the city and the region. As an educational center, the museum pays great attention to organizing exhibitions of artists of Primorsky region, conducts knight tournaments, and hosts many more cultural events.
