Some 600,000 Russians call Vladivostok their home. Vladivostok, meaning the "Lord of the East" in Russian, is located less than 75 miles east of the Chinese border, approximately 100 miles north of Korea and just across the Sea of Japan from the main Japanese island of Honshu but a very distant 6,200 miles east of Moscow.
Vladivostok is also the home port of the Russian Navy's pacific fleet, and there are hundreds of military ships and submarines located in the Gold Horn Bay. As a result of this, the city of Vladivostok was a closed region for more than 70 years. It was not until the year of 1992 that Vladivostok was officially opened for foreign visitors as well as the rest of the Russian population.
