Nakhodka Port, Russia
Muravyev-Amursky wanted to explore the Southern district of the Japanese sea alone. On the evening of June 17, they entered a bay that was unknown to them at this stage. The next morning they were woken up to a beautiful sight as they look more intently at where they had landed. One of the sailors shouted out, â€śIt is the findâ€ť, which is Nakhodka in Russian and from there the bay continued to be known as Nakhodka Bay.
Today Nakhodka Port is able to berth about twenty ships at one time and can process up to and over 1500 large-capacity vessels in a year. At the port there is an up to date gantry crane with the capacity to hold up to forty tons, roll trailers and trailers for transporting containers and cargo with dimensions that are on a whole large and wide.
