Russian Buildings from the turn of the century. Most are renovated along the main street, but walk down the side streets too. Walking towards the river from the Holiday Inn, explore the side streets on your right. The buildings here are unrenovated and crumbling, but so full of character. Explore also Hongzhuan Street on your left. As you walk along that street, you'll see the older buildings give way to newer apartment blocks. The last older building on your right; a lower, yellow building; has an entrance to a courtyard. Go in to see a breathtaking view of old Harbin.

The Russian Cafe is on your right towards the river, next to KFC. The Chinese Restaurant directly opposite the Russian Cafe is good.

The touristy shops nearer the river sell Russian goods. Yes, Vodka, caviar and military supplies!

Address: Zhongyang Street
Directions: From Holiday Inn to the River
