This is the view of the central area of Vladivostok as seen from the sea.
In the background new apartment buildings, which are under construction, can be seen disappearing into the mist.
In the centre at the bottom you can see the Green S-56 Submarine. It was once part of the Soviet Pacific Fleet of 30 boats that sank 10 German ships during World War II. It is now a museum and when inside its confined area you climb through porthole doors, peer through the periscope and see many photo exhibits.
To the right of the green submarine is the very small Church of the Dormition of our Lady.

I know this area well. If you continue walking up the steps behind the gold domed church then turn right & walk 200 metres or so there's a fast food place that did great pizzas & fresh peach & strawberry milkshakes. I went back several times. They also made good burgers & fries that were better than Mcdonalds although that's not hard! Thanks for the memory. Good sharpness & framing. I also took a shot of the green sub! Tfs!
