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.

Russian structure. Didnt enter into the cathedral. Just outside for a few shots. Structure is intricate.

We went to the cathedral, and was surprised/saddened & disappointed to see that this magnificent building which is the symbol of Harbin needs some serious maintenance- and is now only a museum- the inside has been stripped of everything that made it a house of...More

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.

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

The building itself looks really good, you can really see the Russian influence. The inside is disappointing though, as it has been turned into a museum (it really is more a collection of photos). No text is in English so except for looking at the...More
