Triumphal Arch of Nicolas II
This triumphal arch was built in 1891 after Vladivostok’s Duma decided to commemorate the visit of Tsarevich Nicolas, future Emperor Nicolas II. Following Russian tradition, the Tsarevich laid the first stone of what was to be the Railway station and of the railroad itself. The original arch was destroyed in 1927-1930 by Soviet authorities. It was rebuilt in 2003.
