This place is also city's highest point that has its own unique history. It used to be called Klykov Hill after the famous Far East researcher′s name. The Hill derived name «Orlinaya» (Eagle) from the main episode of the Russo-Turkish war that is known as the Battle for the Shipka pass or the Defence of the Eagle′s Nest.
What′s unique in Vladivostok landscape is that the city is located on the Sikhote-Alin mountain range′s offshoots. The tops of the mountains rising above the urban quarters are natural platforms to overlook the city′s breathtaking panoramas from the bird′s eye view.It is recommended to begin acquaintance with the city from the «Orlinoe Gnezdo» Hill. Just at that spot, the first city dwellers landed many years ago. Herefrom the dawns and sunsets in the Zolotoy Rog Bay can be watched. The television tower that can be seen from the city different points is also located here. The forest occupies the part of the Hill′s territory. The range of the dwelling houses reshaped the city is sited around it. The monument to the Cyril and Methodius who created the Cyrillic script, the stones of the friendship with Vladivostok′s sister city in Japan, and the Arch of Desires are installed on this platform.
