The coastal battery «Tigrovaya» is located on the same named hill in Vladivostok. There used to base Transbaikalian artillery brigade in 1862. After the brigade had been disbanded, the smoothbore guns were mounted here.  

There was the active phase of battery's construction in 1890. The engineer Lomakovskiy was the initiator of the project. The battery underwent minor remodeling in the following 9 years: the wooden basements were being modified; the ammunition chamber was being built etc.

In addition, the underground reservoir was created here some time later. The reservoir has been in good repair and operating condition thus far. At that moment most of the coastal battery's rooms are closed for tourists. The rooms are either covered with the earth or built up with the other objects.

The visitors of battery will be able to see the pavilion, three gunpowder magazines and two conical shaped foundations, slightly digged under by the builders.
