Admire the colors and culture of Sophia Square, a public plaza known as the home of a large-scale orthodox church. Extending out in front of the 1912 Byzantine-style church, the square allows for investigation of the church's ornate exterior decoration and architectural idiosyncrasies, which stand in clear contrast to the other architecture around the square. The space itself also represents a popular meeting place for locals and tourists alike, hosting a range of food and souvenir stalls.

  • We walked around at about 5pm to 9pm. The night at this street is cooling and pretty crowded but it was fun with some street shows and water fountain near the church. The night market nearby was exciting selling the local foods and some exotic snacks.
  • The building is very Russian. The whole Harbin city is a heritage of Russian culture. On this square you can find the biggest Orthodox church in the far east. There are many shopping malls around this square, so it is convenient to buy souvenirs.
