Two minutes that take your breath Oct 26, 2013
Funicular which celebrated the semicentennial anniversary in 2012 is not only convenient and irreplaceable transport for the city with such difficult relief as at Vladivostok, but also one of the most amazing sights of the city. The significance of the funicular was provided by its uniqueness. It is the only similar type of electro transport in the Russian Far East and one of two in the country. It represents two stopping points in the bottom and on the top of Orlinaya hill between which two cars move. They are painted in red and blue and contain up to 40 people. They move on the single-line rail road, parting in the middle of a way.

Total length of the funicular route is a little more than 180 meters, and a height difference between the bottom and top platforms is 70 meters. The car covers all distance less than in two minutes, but it is enough to admire tremendous views of the central part of the city and a picturesque Golden Horn bay. The magnificent panorama opens from the observation deck equipped at the top station of the funicular.
