Thank the Russians for this unique bit of architecture. The square could really use more activity, but it's a great place to spend a bit of time while in Harbin.

Now an Art Museum displaying the City's history from a fishing village to a Russian railway outpost to the Japanese invasion to modern day China.

When you hear about a cathedral or a Russian Church, you might think about something tall and big..
Sophia Church comes in a very mini size (small compares to other churches I've ever seen), but you will be amazed by every detail of it.
Covered with snow during winter and pigeons fly over the top, made it look so magical!

There's no entrance fee around the area, but if you want to get inside, you need to pay.. So ironic to know entering a church is no longer free these days.

It was a beautiful church, and I loved the architecture and history. I know I'm being totally western, but I do wish they had at the minimum an English guidebook. I so wanted to know more about the pictures and history. I loved the area, even though it's a total tourist mecca.

If you're ever in Harbin (or the general vicinity), this is a must see.

I enjoyed this visit. The church was lovely inside and out with lots of information boards and photographs on the walls. There was a little kiosk shop on entry with usual souvenirs.
