“The best viewpoint in Vladivostok”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This place is the best viewpoint in Vladivostok. If the weather is fine, you can see the city and the Goldern Bay bridge. It is free of charge.

“Best viewpoint of the city”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Orlinoye Gnezdo (The Eagle’s Nest) hill is one of the main symbols of the capital of the region. It’s not only the highest point of the old city, but also its geographical center. The main television tower, the radio-transmitting center is located here.
The highest point of this geographical object reaches 199 m above sea level. The television tower can be seen from all ends of Vladivostok. The 180 meters tower, shining flashing lights like a Christmas tree, is one of the night city symbols.
From observation platform of the hill opens a delightful view of the central part of the city and the cable-stayed bridge across the Golden Horn Bay. Also you can see Russky bridge footing from here.
On the July, 1 2006 there was opened the only monument on Russian Far East dedicated to founders of Slavic writing saint brothers Cyril and Methodius. Behind the sculptural group there is a bell tower topped with a gilded dome and a cross.
This observation platform is often visited by newly married couples, which are hanging up the locks as a symbol of strong love. So there are lots of them now on the ropes holding the monument.

“Great views of Vladivostok but the area is rundown”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This should be one area that the Vladivostok city council should invest in upgrading and maintaining. The Eagle's Nest mount offers fabulous views over the city and the harbour, but the area is really old and rundown. I took the funicular up to the road across the base of the Eagle's Nest Mount and worth doing this to get to the mount. The souvenir shop below it has a great range of products for those wanting to buy souvenirs.

“Best view of the city”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I can only describe it, the day I went it's a good walk uphill to get there but when you arrive the view is great. The day I went I forgot my cam, unbelievable worth going

“Eagle's Nest”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

This has some of the best views in the city, the bridge looks amazing from here. one down fall, getting to the top is an obstacle course. best way to get here is to go to bridge and follow it up hill, look up left and you will see it next to a bank billboard.
