The architectural works here also bear the bold architectural features of Russia. If tourists want to explore the beautiful country of Russia but have not had the opportunity, even in the city of Harbin, visitors can also do it.


Besides being famous for its historic Russian heritage, the city serves as an important gateway in Sino-Russian trade today, hosting a large number of emigrants from Russia. In the 1920s, the city was considered the fashion capital of China since designers from Paris and Moscow invested here before coming to Shanghai.


Having some of the coldest winters among China's major cities, Harbin is nicknamed the "City of Ice" in reference to its popular tourist development and winter leisure activities. Notable is the city's ice sculpture festival in winter.

Harbin is renowned for its culinary tradition. The cuisine of Harbin consists of European dishes and Northern Chinese dishes mainly typified by heavy sauce and deep-frying. One of the most famous dishes in Northeastern Chinese cuisine is Guo Bao Rou, a form of sweet and sour pork. Another popular regional specialty is Harbin-style smoked savory red sausage. This product, which is similar to mild Lithuanian and German sausages, tend to be much more European flavors than other Chinese sausages.
