Guys, I hope you are not going to make me ask this over and over forever.... ALL NEW THREADS MUST CREDIT WHERE THEY GOT THE PHOTOS... even if it is just a general credit like Flickr, etc... if you have forgotten where you got them. It is basically to tell us the pictures are not yours. I'm assuming in this case the photos are yours, deangels, and will move this to Urban Showcase. If they are not, credit them and pm me and I will move it back.

This thread is the reason why I love SSC. I've heard of Harbin before but never had any idea what an unusual and spectacular city it was. and this pic is awesome:

Never knew that Harbin had such a huge scope of Russian buildings. Some of the classical buildings look pretty new though. Are they just extensively renovated old Russian buildings or are the city planners making sure that new buildings conform to Russian style? Because it would be really cool if they did.

Now THAT's exhotic! European architecture dominated by Chinese people and writing. I like it and it matches ehe. The city looks amazingly clean and the buildings are really well kept. Just a question though: when did Harbin become Chinese? It must have been from recent history right? Because well, Chinese don't build like that!

in the year of 1115 , jin dynasty creat this city. so haerbin is always a chinese city. in the year of 1898, haerbin has her first railway. after 1920, this city developed fastly, and now, haerbin has a population of 9 million.
by the way -13 degree seems a very warm day in winter, usually below -20 degree.

Harbin was largely built by Russians during the railway extension at the turn of the century. It is estimated that at its peak Harbin had about 100,000 Russians living in it - at the time, the largest single expatriate community outside of Russia. There is now literally a handful of Russians left in the city (Mao was not their fan), but the Russian influence remains obvious in the architecture.
