Primorsky Krai

Primorsky Krai, also known as "Primorie" is one of Russia's 89 administrative divisions (also referred to as "members of the Federation"). Primorsky Krai is located at the southern extreme of Russian Far East, bordering with China, North Korea, and Khabarovsk Krai, and separated from Japan by the Sea of Japan. The administrative center of Primorsky Krai is Vladivostok.

Krai is a term used to refer to several of Russia's administrative units. "Primorsky" means "maritime" in Russia, hence the region is sometimes referred to as "Maritime Province".
