This is very picturesque. However, early July 2018, outside is covered by scaffolding, so temporarily not picturesque. The square is still alive with people for people watching. Was here in January 2018, no scaffolding, but it was obviously winter and VERY COLD. In July, warm...More

Architecturally attractive from.the inside but a disappointment after you pay a fee to enter. The pews are removed and what you see are mostly pictures of old Harbin. The dome and aged walls gives you an idea of how old the church is but if...More
