  1. Westerners see trashes on beach – I smart! I see oppurtunities!!!! In photo 5 I see new dress for wife. iN foto 14 I see new crib for baby. Also what I think is new cassette for VCR! Look a like pay day to me!!!

    • True. Even if there was a budget for garbage collecting, it would end up in someone’s pocket. And no garbage bins. Be happy you do not smell this beach.

    • Hahahahaha. Amusing. Go visit Russia some day, and talk to some Russians – provided you catch a moment when one of them is not unconscious from the copious amounts of vodka everyone consumes since age three. Then you’ll understand.

  2. Disaster beach! Bizzare to know that there’s at least one Manchester Utd fan in Vladivostok – See pic 2 bottom right! My guess is it’s not a beach towel but part of the rubbish! Ha!

  3. Nice! A clear case of ‘houlyara’ (the plague) come up. But I suppose if you get enough tidal action it can wash it all out to sea & swirl in the Pacific plastic Sea.

  4. God damn it, what are worthless trolls like Torex talking about? The garbage gets gathered in piles, and removed. Geez.

    Had EnglishRussia stopped being such a popularist, lying site they would have made it clear.

  5. Some subversive elements attending my class refused to collect the garbage, saying there were too many used preservatives full of gooey stuff. They said the school doctor warned them not to touch used preservatives and/or needles they find.
    I sent a report to the Supreme Soviet suggesting there are no transmissible diseases in our country and thus the doctor should be dealt with accordingly, but it seems Comrade Brezhnew is otherwise preoccupied 🙁

    • I would hate it also, if I was living in it.
      Maybe not the history, the nature, culture… but I would hate the mess, corruption, people’s attitude.

  6. Now I understand why so many Russian girls go to Jurmala, Palanga, and some of the other Baltic resorts. Sadly, before I had thought they came to the Baltic to find my wang, so we were all convinced.

    Russian men don’t always stand on the beach… sometimes they lay, but only at clean beaches.

    I would much rather be at a beach full of Russians than Americans. You don’t see as many troubles, have a better time, and the girls play fast and loose. Oh yeah, no black people, either.

  7. That is good approach!!
    In Russia we do it different. Collecting garbage is not done by us, but someone else. We are in different league.

  8. White trash right there, alright (and I don’t mean the rubish!)!

    Why don’t you just incinerate them together with their trash – it would be cathartic, I’d say.

  9. 1. Ignore the False Kirov – he is worthless trash.
    2. T Rose, srsly. In America, there are many beaches completely destroyed by garbage (California-Flordia I think), or so I have red. At least the garbage gets removed here…

    • Well, I haven’t been to beaches in Florida or California so I can’t speak for them. The beaches I’ve visited in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Virginia were all clean, though.

      Regardless- People EVERYWHERE, not just Russians, should pick up after themselves.

  10. To tell the truth, that’s not the most favorite beach of Vladivostok. It’s a place for people who just don’t have any opportunity to go countryside to the clean beatiful beaches washed with terrific green-blue ocean! Outskirts of Vladivostok are fascinating!

    P.S. I’m from Vladivostok…

  11. I’m inclined to believe that, and obviously one can find litter anywhere, but seriously! I’ve never seen a beach, or pictures of a beach, quite this bad in the US or anywhere in “the West”. If a garbage scow just spilled maybe. But how hard is it to pick up after yourself? This looks as bad or worse as any ghetto scene in the US!

    • You know, it seems to me, that they’ve published the photos of the most dirty beach in Vladivosot and obviously no the MOST POPULAR one. It’s hard to judge about nature and eco-system by a couple of photos. As a citizen, I can say, that this year almost all beaches around our city are clean and well-groomed.

  12. I am a recent viewer to this website and have enjoyed it immensely. The subjects, photos, and commentary (both good and not so…) have given me more insight. The visitors have shown all the humor, proudness and frustration that is part of all peoples – regardless of the country of origin. Other than the entertainment value, perhaps this site is meant to share ideas and encouragement.

    These photos of Vladivostok beach is its own commentary. I’m inclined to agree with the former comments from “T Rose”. And to refute the comment from …the “real Kirov”.

    Here, where I live, we know a thing or two about beaches. For the last twenty years our local government, with voter approval, has used a one half of one percent (.005%) sales tax to purchase, with matching funds, an extra 90,000 acres. This is for the public use as parks, horseback riding trails, fishing areas (salt & fresh), water conservation and every ocean front beach not in private hands. To view one or more of these beaches, the address is: http://www.evsmartin.com/martin.htm . The site has streaming video as well as weather conditions and two links to other beaches. I will look forward to “the real Kirov” responce.

  13. I am from Latvia, former USSR and this is EXACTLY why we don’t like Russians, which are a big minority here. The problem is their attitude. Who would throw garbage in PILES (“to collect it in the morning) instead of searching for the garbage bin or putting it in the bags?
    When we have an event in a city center where there are a lot of Russian people (demonstration, concert of Russian band, celebration of Victory day), you know, that afterwards, you will have to walk through piles and piles of garbage, empty and broken bottles. In case of a Latvian concert – there is garbage, but only from place to place, and never whole LAYER of garbage. Well I am in no way against Russians, I have Russian friends and my own grand mother is Russian, but, come on, there is something wrong with your culture, you have to admit it.
    On the other hand, about 6-7 years ago it was much worse.

  14. Russians have now been travelling in big numbers all over the world almost 20 years. I have noticed that they have already started to export their ”Russian cleanliness”.
    How can people live in such s..t?

  15. First of all VLADIVOSTOK one of the beautiful city on the Russian Far East. There are Russian part of the Sea of Japan, perfect and unique nature and sea site. VLADIVOSTOK is much developed city, 90 present of population posses the Japanese vehicle and traveling around. Just refer to the internet to find it out, printing VLADIVOSTOK

    Who posts “Royal Beach” such bloody pictures here? This is LIE!
    This is NOT the most favorite beach of Vladivostok, its located just two-step from industrial area and all dwellers are there.
    People say it is the most favorite beach of Vladivostok. This is LIE!
    There are NOT many people spending their summer vacations there. Ballocks!
    People come to enjoy the sun beams and water on different famous beach named LAZURNY BEREG ( SHAMARA old name), mentioned point really clean and beautiful located one hour drive from the city and there really clear water, around five km of send, good environment &service and so on.
    Moreover, there are so many islands around “Peter the Great Bay” and some of them are really paradise, the ferry service is welcome.

  17. We are taken by skin diving on this beach many years successively. Despite that in photos a beach not absolutely pure, but water much more clean on it – a transparency to 15 metres.

  18. You should have seen Danube ‘beaches’ in Belgrade a few years back…
    But seriously, if the amount of garbage and people with 2nd degree burns wasn’t so…large, Vladivostok would be a really beautiful place.

  19. Im an Afro-American female married to a Russian from Vladivostok.

    Stop the racism and end pollution! We have advanced socially and economically,now that we have a black President in America. You can’t come here with those prejudice attitudes. We won’t tolerant it. Even the Russian Americans are decent cool people. Have some pride and dignity.
