"Millionka"

There is an area consisting of a few blocks of red brick buildings, arches, balconies, and nooks built at the end of 19th century in the heart of historical Vladivostok that holds a lot of juicy secrets. It is called "Millionka".

The old "Millionka" was a fun and creepy place with brothels, gambling houses, and opium dens. In other words, it was a nest of crime controlled by Chinese gangs.

In 1936, NKVD (the People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs) liquidated it during one of their raids.

However, "Millionka" still has not lost its old peculiar charm. Nowadays it is a place for walking, featuring abundant cafes, art galleries, and conceptual graffiti that attracts many people, especially artists.

Explore "Millionka" with the guide and historian from the "City Time" sightseeing bureau.
