Walked down here during our visit for the ice festival. During winter it is lined with many ice sculptures and lights that make it a fun and pretty street to stroll down. Since the ground is frozen you do have to watch your step since some places can be slippery. We came here every night during our four days in... More

A tourist trap...Nuff Said! But having said that, we wanted to try the famous Russian Bread. The prices were ok, as all the other shops had the same prices. So, not sure if it was a rip off.

I highly recommend to visit this street especially in the evening it is very nice there. Street musicians, no cars or scooters and so many small tasty restaurants or street offers you shouldn't miss. Especially the Russian specialties I really enjoyed. During my next trip I will come again, definitely.

You will find this street crowded by people as it is the landmark and tourist attraction point. You can find Russian shops where you can find stuff for gifts etc. Along the road there are ice sculptures decorated with colorful lights. There are food points you can amaze yourself while looking around. There is an underpass for pedestrian where you... More

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
