Day 2 St. Sophia Church, Central Street, Sun Island Snow Sculpture Art Expo, Siberian Tiger Park, Ice and

    After breakfast, your first sight will be the St.Sophia Church. It’s an Orthodox Eastern Church in Byzantine style and the iconic building of Harbin. Built in 1907, St.Sophia Church was the largest church of its kind in the far east area, and it’s the best-preserved Byzantine architecture in China. The green onion-shaped top is quite remarkable. There is a big square in front of the church where you can see flocks of pigeons seeking food. Today, the church has lost its original function but acts as a museum to show the history of Harbin city.

    Afterward, you will walk on Central Street, a street that hosts many stylish European buildings like the architectures of Renaissance, Baroque, eclecticism, and modernism. It’s a wonderful place to experience the architectural charm.

    Your afternoon will get started from the Sun Island Snow Sculpture Art Expo. It’s also an annual event in Harbin with a different theme every year. Here, you will get close to snow and feel the "warmth” of the snow in different themes. Besides, there are also activities like snow sliding, ice arena, snow dodgem, snowboarding, etc., making it an ideal place for a family vacation.

    Next, we will leave for the Siberian Tiger Park, the largest of its kind globally. There are over 1000 tigers here, including the Siberian tigers, white tigers, snow tigers, white lions, jaguars, African lions, etc.. Besides observing the tigers from the tourist bus, you can also feed them meats.

    At last, we will cover the Ice and Snow World in the evening. It’s the very highlight of the tour. You will marvel at the tallest, longest, and largest ice and snow landscape on earth. You are about to see many world-famous buildings and cartoons made of ice and snow, European style performances, and ice sports. It’s like walking in a fairyland of ice lanterns.

There are different 15 trails built here, including the trails for beginners, intermediate and senior skiers and children. The longest snow trail is 2,300m long. The skiing resort is also facilitated with all kinds of equipment. You can find whatever you need here for skiing.
