The buildings are great but not really has much different compared with other cathedral. You wouldnt be able to take picture without strangers on the background though. It is very crowded. However, I couldnt tell if there is some activities we can do there, since...More

The Saint Sophia Cathedral is a beautiful old church just a few blocks from the shopping street. No visit to Harbin would be complete without a stop her.

It was to observe an actual religious structure that was used by the Russians in the past. The exterior is beautiful. The interior is not very appealing. It needs to be enhanced.

Interesting museum of old Harbin. Sad to say we don't read Mandarin so were unable to get as much out of it as we might. If they want to attract more international tourist more English translations would help

One of those places you ask yourself after travelling a long way to see it - "Is that it?" Walk around it for 5 minutes then go somewhere else.

The cathedral is small but beautiful, especially at golden hour. The inside has been converted to a museum, but still has the original chandeliers. There was a photographic history of Harbin on display while we were there, which was interesting was I wish you could...More

This is quite beautiful on the outside. The inside though is cramped and claustrophobic as many people are packed into a small space without any sense of direction. The inside is setup more like a museum space with haphazard photos hung on the walls -...More
