  • It was Cathedral but nowadays turn into museum where the Harbin history shows in here.It feels like in Rusia when you're in here not like in China.I think it's a must visit when you're in Harbin.  more »
  • 聖索非亞教堂是哈爾濱最出名的景點之一了,其實從中央大街步行過來還是有些遠的。教堂外部的景色很適合拍照紀念,不過內部其實早已不是一個教堂了,而是作為哈爾濱歷史的一個介紹展覽來示出的。  more »
