Vancouver. Vladivostok winters too long/cold, and I don't like the idea of summers being that cloudy/humid (though the summer we just had here which was even cloudier didn't feel all that bad). Vancouver's that similar to what I know anyway I'd hardly notice the difference apart from the heavier winter rain.

Vladivostok as Vancouver doesn't have winters. BTW, did you know "vladi vostok" means "rule the east" in Russian? Even their city names reflect the attitude.

Vancouver. Vladivostok is too cold for too long, and the summer is too short and cloudy.

Vancouver has milder winters, and much sunnier summers.

I really like the name Valdivostok....its so cool.

I ve seen pics of this place in skyscraper and it looks quite nice.

My cousin lived in vancouver and its very pretty, too.

Summers in Vancouver are actually IDEAL for me, almost.

But Vladivostok sun distribution...i love it!! Winters sunnier than summers? yay!! Much much better distribution than in Vancouver!

Vancouver in winter/fall is really gloomy/crappy and depressing. When my cousin returned from Vancouver one february she said she was in the verge of being depressed cause it was cloudy/raining since November!!! Im not used to this kind of dark/gloomy places in winter, even Mar del Plata, that haves similar sunshine hours than Vancouver, is MUCH sunnier in winter and fall, cause the distrubition is more even, wich i love. Places like vancouver really feel crappy and gloomy most of the year.


So i dont know what to vote, lol.

You'd notice the sunnier, drier summers

Vancouver as Canada is more appealing than Russia.
