Harbin Flood Control Memorial Tower commemorates heroes who helped the city fight off floods of the Songhua River. In 1958, just one year after the city beat the devastating flood which threatened Harbin in 1957. The army built the tower and huge embankments to protect the city from future destruction, and the memorial commemorates the heroic spirit of those who defended the city. The 22.5 m (47 ft) tower has markings to delineate the highest water levels from floods in both 1932 and 1957.

  • One of the symbols of the city, in the Center, where there is a Memorial (I haven't figured out what, dated 1998). Beautiful river views.

  • This statue is a nice way to finish your walk along the shopping street. Grab a sausage on a stick and relax. Watch out for weird people offering to take you on a tour of the city.  more »
  • Songhua River in the early 20 century to the middle, after several floods, the most severe 1957 water level reached 120 meters (more than 4 meters above the city of Riverwalk), the flood-control tower's meaning is only a record of historical events! The tower is located inside Stalin Park, facing the central street, the geographical indication is very strong ~
