Vladivostok!  The end of the Trans-Siberian Railway, and Russia's ice-free Pacific port (home to their Pacific Fleet).  
This submarine is a museum, and it is fun to go through - as long as you don't mind ducking.


Paul, Angela's father, making his way through the submarine.


Here is a fancy little pagoda near the submarine.


A church, behind a WWII memorial.


A beautiful Russian Orthodox church in Valdivostok.


The interior of that church.


A smaller church next door.



This is a great overlook of the entire city.  We saw our ship as well as a number of navy vessels that were gathered for a celebration of the end of WWII starting a few days later.
