Russky Island, once a distant home for Russian military personnel stationed in Vladivostok, now has one of the leading, international universities in Russia. The Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU or DVFU in Russian) sits on Ajax Bay looking across the water toward the city of Vladivostok. The island reportedly has a species of fox that is endemic only to the island. FEFU is a new university on track to be one of the leading higher education institutions in Russia. The campus is built and operated to international standards and currently hosts approximately 25,000 students.
The City of Vladivostok and Russky Island were "closed" to any outsiders during the Soviet period but in the last 5-10 years, it has seen incredible growth and new infrastructure and is a welcoming city for foreign guests.
