Top Descriptions

Set on the opposite side of the river to city centre, this tiger park offers the opportunity to see the majestic Siberian White tiger in large numbers. There are several differently named areas, housing various aged and sized Siberian tigers. Unlike most zoos, this park allows the animals to roam a little more freely and it is the visitors who stay behind bars as they are driven around the open enclosures. There is also the possibility to buy animals to instigate a live kill.

Top Tips

If you generally enjoy zoos, then you may be comfortable here. However, if you tend to find enclosed animals somewhat upsetting, especially in large numbers, then you may not find these supposedly roaming tigers pleasurable to view.
Expect the bar/mesh protected minivan to be fairly firm, bouncy, and noisy when full of local tourists.
Should you wish to see a tiger take down a cow, then this is reportedly something that can be paid for.

Top Descriptions

This town is as it sounds – a Russian architecturally styled village with small detached houses and a few odd sculptures. It’s a very pleasant place to walk as it is much quieter and much more aesthetically enchanting than proper. Also, people claim the restaurants here serve up Russian foods and it is possible to buy Russian products too.

Top Descriptions

The is regarded to be a perfect example of Neo-Byzantine architecture which was particularly popular during the late 19th century. Built in 1907, this place of worship was erected when a third of population were Russian. It is reportedly the largest Orthodox church in the Far East. After closure in the 1950s, the church was apparently neglected and only reopened fairly recently as Harbin’s Museum of Architecture.

Perhaps do not set expectations too high if entering the church; it is mostly old photos and some souvenir sellers.
This can be quite busy on weekends and national holidays.
Although the interior is neglected, the exterior is beautiful- try to come both day and night if you want to capture a variety of impressions.
