Known as “Paris of the Orient”, the “ice city” of Harbin is a great place to ski and see ice sculptures. The Harbin Ice and Snow World is a world-renowned tourist attraction, where it showcases vivid ice sculptures and ice lanterns every winter. In this scenic spot, playing on the ice slide at 1,000 meters height is an enjoyable activity for residents and tourists alike. The city also hosts the Sun Island International Snow Sculpture Art Expo every year, displaying a variety of huge, vivid, and unique snow sculptures.
In addition to the Harbin Ice and Snow World and the Sun Island International Snow Sculpture Art Expo, tourists can take a stroll in the Russian streets and explore ancient buildings, such as Harbin Central Avenue, Gogol Street, the St. Sophia Church, and the Hulan Catholic Church. Against the backdrop of snow, Harbin resembles a fairytale world of snow, with a warm and romantic atmosphere. In winter, the natural ice rink on the Songhua River covered by white snow feels like a scene from the animation film Frozen.
