"St. Sophia's Church" China Things to Do Tip by szivhk

China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos


Classic Russian Orthodox Church, and Harbin's most famous landmark. Stunning architecture. Not a church anymore, the building houses a photo exhibition. It's interesting to see this before and after you have seen the city itself. It captures what life was like for the early Russian residents. If you view it after your tour of the city, you will recognise the buildings in the photos, all in their heyday.

The plaza surrounding the church is pretty well done. You can easily escape from the cold in the MyKAL mall across the road. They have every international, high-end brand in there, and an amazing supermarket.

Address: Zhaolin St.
