From there, you drive straight, not making any turns. The road, with the exception of Narvinskii mountain pass in the vicinity of the legendary Leopard Reserve, is hard-paved. You will be passing a detour to Slavyanka along the way (the distance there is about 115 km), but you don't want to make that turn. You follow the road leading to Zarubino straight ahead to find a detour to Andreevka. Hard-paved road ends there, and a dirt-road proceeds along the shoreline. You will travel through a village to a Y-intersection with a Vityaz Bay (Bukhta Vityaz) sign that will be seen on the left-hand side (in the direction opposite to the sea). Climbing on top of the hill, you will see huge blocks of rock and, on the left-hand side of the road, a sign indicating 'Ruthenia'. Take care not to miss the turn that meets the road at acute angle, leading downhill to the very gate of The Rus Side Club.
