Primorye: Bolshoy Kamen
November 12, 2017 00:24


Bolshoy Kamen (“Big Stone” translated from Russian) is a closed town between Vladivostok and Nakhodka; the only plant in the Far East specializing in repair, re-equipment and modernization of nuclear submarine missile carriers is located there.

It is not easy to get here, like to any Closed Administrative-Territorial Unit: you need to order a pass in the Border Administration. The town and the nearby villages of Tsarevka and Moleny Mys are the starting points for climbing the peaks of the Livadiysky Ridge.

It’s easier to conquer the ridge from here, from the north-east, than from the south, from Nakhodka: the distance from Moleny Mys along the Galanta River to the foothills of Lysy Ded (“Bald Grandfather”) and Pidan makes up less than ten kilometers. It should be said that Bolshoy Kamen may be more attractive for tourists than Nakhodka, not only because of its location. The atmosphere of this closed town is incomparably better than that of Nakhodka, the streets are surprisingly clean, and the staff of local cafes and shops is very polite.

To tell the truth, the landscape of Bolshoy Kamen is much less picturesque than that of Nakhodka with its high bald mountains.
