The pedestrian Admiral Fokin Street was originally called Pekinskaya Street in honor of the capital of China. This name was given in memory of the treaty of 1860 which defined the Russian-Chinese borders. Then for some time it was called Torgovaya. But since 1964 the street has been named after the commander of the Pacific Fleet, Admiral Fokin, who held this position for four years. However, the people often call this street the Vladivostok Arbat - in honor of the most famous pedestrian street in Russia - the Moscow Arbat.
From the Admiral Fokin Street almost everywhere one can see the sea, along the street stretch the well-groomed houses of old buildings, on the first floors of which there are shops, nice cafes and cozy restaurants. The street is paved with cobblestones, decorated with flower beds and fountains, and in the evening it is lit by stylized lanterns. Musicians often perform on the Vladivostok Arbat. If you look around carefully, you can see the mysterious passages leading to the alleys and courtyards of Millionka, the legendary Chinese quarter that existed in the city at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. It was the poorest, densely populated quarter of the city and for numerous inhabitants people jokingly called them "millionaires".
