Vladivostok, Russia

I never thought about people in Siberia posting letters, but Vladivostok is Russia’s largest port on the Pacific, at the far end of the railroad from Moscow, so I guess you’d want a generous postal presence. Finished in 1900, the post office was designed by architect A. A. Gvozdziovsky, who embodied traditional Russian architectural features such as an abundance of arches, small columns and niches with deep windows. The building, at 41 Svetlanskaya Street, is still used as the central post office.
