Nakhodka Harbor

Nakhodka (Russian: Нахо́дка, nah-KHOHT-kuh) is a port city in Primorsky Krai and stands for nothing less than 'discovery' in Russian. In recent years, Russia designated the city a "free economic zone," a variation on China's very successful Special Economic Zones, which could potentially attract large-scale foreign investment. It is location of the port Vostochniy, the largest stividor in Russian Far East, and an oil-terminal for Sakhalin projects.

By train[edit]

Direct trains come from Khabarovsk every other day in cold season. In hot season they arrive daily. Don't be confused if the destination in your ticket would be read as 'Tikho'okeanskaya' (Тихоокеанская) because it's the main railway station. The station 'Nakhodka' is up north and serves commuter purposes mostly. Elektrichkas bound for Vladivostok and Partizansk depart 3 times a day: in the morning, at midday and in the evening.
