Sophia Square, Harbin

3.8
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Harbin trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
