Interesting mix of Russian and Chinese architecture

A good walk along a popular tourist street with many shops and restaurants and evidence of Harbin's early years as Russian railway town.

Zhongyang da jie is an absolute must-see in Harbin. You can easily combine a trip to the Saint Sophia cathedral with a visit to the pedestrian mall. I suggest you start at the flood monument (fanghong jinian ta) and walk down from there. It is a very lively street, with endless shopping malls, and dining options. If you have a... More

the street is not long but worth to take a time to walk. if you don't shop or only for window shopping, it takes less than one hour to complete the trip of the street. during the night, it showed its specialty compared to other streets of China. many Russian style restaurants. the end of the street is Songhua River....

Something not to be missed at Harbin. Thronging people walking up and down the street. So many shops, a number selling Russian stuff. The waterfront is not far away.

After we went to Sophia, we went to this street and there were lots of people walking in one direction. It was amazing that the number of people does not go down. It continously have lots of people walking around. Combination of locals and tourists. I really enjoyed the food area... lots of delicous food...

Loved the cobblestone lined street. A bit too crowded but it was unavoidable because we went during a holiday. We had dinner at Pectopah Restaurant. Delicious food and live music made for a very nice experience. After dinner we went for a walk and enjoyed all the street music.

This pedestrian street is very nice. Lots of people. Good atmosphere and lots of photo opportunities along the way. I have walked twice already, and enjoyed it. You meet people from various places, and walks of life. Everybody is friendly and enjoying themselves and enjoy the atmosphere created by the crowd. Walk the walk

A lot of choices for general shopping in a much more interesting environment than just inside a modern mall (at least in good summer weather). Live outdoor music in the evenings, relaxed environment, and some (but not that many) reasonably well preserved old buildings. The speciality shopping is just so-so with its focus on "Russian" goods. Most of it is... More
