You would think that this is party street. There are tons of street vendors offering from the normal to the exotic. Lots of day time shops to visit and buy souvenirs, with many coffee shops where you can people watch. Sexism is alive on these streets, witnessing many lesbian couples walking around, as well fashionable types walking around. I would... More

This street is so unique in China, it was delightful. The store names in both Russian and Chinese was great, and the Russian influence over the architecture and the contents of shops was so unique. The placards on various buildings explaining their history was the best part for me. All in all, a really lovely walk through a part of... More

In the middle or May, the middle of the week, and the middle of the evening, this cobblestoned pedestrian street was so crowded with people that it was sometimes hard to walk. There were bands on stages and in balconies, dancers, even movies shown on large screens. Also many shops and restaurants. A unique experience.

This street was so different to everything else that we saw in China. Between the cobbled stones, the soft accordion music played over hidden speakers, the street names in Russian, and the fairy lights hanging from the trees, it was a magical place to wonder around at night time. Try the sausages from the street vendors, they are delicious.

Zhongyang street preserves a little of the atmosphere from the Russian heritage. It must be extremely cold in the winter, but in the springtimes it is lined with trees full of green leaves and full of people. Some buildings are marked as architectural heritage, and while they may not be specially beatiful, the ensemble of the people plus trees plus... More

The street is totally Russian designed, with historic buildings, Russian songs and Western restaurants. However most of the buildings are selling clothes, with big banners and noisy advertisement, which are, to me, very inappropriate. I don't like even the red electric banner "Harbin welcomes you" on the old stone status, which is originally very attractive, but due to the electric... More

The architecture and all of the little stalls are excellent. There are lots of places to stop off and warm up if you are in town for the snow and ice festival.

A very long and interesting pedestrian street full of shops, eateries and vibrancy. It's a must visit in Harbin. You have to visit during day and night as it has different ambiance. This street is not the same as the Wangfujing street in Beijing or Nanjing road in Shanghai as the architecture is similar to Europe. At the end of... More

This street has the combination of culture, architectural, food and human between Russian and China. It is unique and fascinating to explore every corner of the street. If you didn't come to Harbin well equipped, you can get good any slipper and thick shoes for you to walk around in the cold weather. There are plenty of good restaurants that... More
