Russia is the largest country on the planet, we speak of a place that occupies not only a large part of Europe but also of Asia. It is a great world power full of a very strong history that has made its citizens grow enormously. When we say that it is a world power, it means that it is in military, economic, social, cultural and technological matters. It has incredibly large regions that are fundamental axes for its constant growth. One of these places is the beautiful city of Vladivostok. In this post we will introduce you to Vladivostok, we will tell you everything that makes it a magnificent place where if you wanted it you could settle down, search job and start your life from scratch.
Meet the beautiful city of Vladivostok
The beautiful Vladivostok is a capital port city of the Far Eastern Federal District and administrative center of the Krai of Primorye. It is a little over 9 thousand kilometers from Moscow but very close to China and North Korea.
If we divide the word Vladivostok into two parts (Vladi-Vostok) and translate its meaning from Russian, we realize that Vladi comes to mean domain and Vostok means East. Then we can translate Vladivostok as the Dominion over the East. We realize its geostrategic importance.

In terms of population, only in the last census conducted in this town a total of 600 thousand inhabitants for the year 2010 was counted, a number that evidently has been increasing in the last 9 years.
Vladivostok, was for a long time a city forbidden to foreigners, since it is the main headquarters of the Soviet Navy. But over the years this prohibition has been decreasing. Now it is the main center of the Russian economy with an excellent transport service and parcel companies. In addition to all this, Vladivostok has the famous Trans-Siberian train and the Vladivostok International Airport.
The winters in this city are quite cold despite having a constantly clear sky. The air that runs through Vladivostok is dry and its temperature in temperate times oscillates over the 23 degrees of average.
The most prominent productive sectors of the port city are transport, the encomienda service, energy, fishing and the naval industry. Because it is a port city, Vladivostok increases its commercial production by 80% thanks to fishing. This is undoubtedly the productive sector with the greatest demand and a very good place to Buy authentic Russian caviar.
If you're thinking travel to Russia to study, you may be interested in visiting the beautiful Vladivostok region thanks to its large university centers, which include:
- The Federal University of the Far East.
- The State Technical University of the Far East.
- The State Maritime University.
- The State Technical Fishing University of the Far East.
- The State University of Economics and Services of Vladivostok.
- The State Medical University of Vladivostok.
- The State University of the Pacific Economy.
But do not think that science does not participate in this long list of study centers. In fact, Vladivostok is the branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences that is currently known as RAS and there they have the following institutes:
- The Automation and Control Processes Institute.
- The Institute of Applied Mathematics.
- The Institute of Maritime Technology.
- The Institute of Chemistry.
- The Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry.
- The Pacific Pacific Institute of Geography.
- The Institute of History, Archeology and Ethnography of the Far East.
- Among others.
All this makes Vladivostok a city in which anyone would want to live but unfortunately very distant and still unknown to the world.
