Flower delivery to Harbin.
Harbin is also known as 'The Ice City' for its bitterly cold winters, and was first settled some 4000 years ago, towards the end of the Stone Age. It became an international city in the 19th century, and has passed between Russia and China a number of times.
The freezing winters might put some people off a visit to the city, but it is also the time when Harbin, paradoxically, is at its liveliest. The International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival is held every January, and the whole of the city centre turns into a wonderland, full of the most astonishingly carved ice and snow sculptures. It is a scene right out of a dream or a fairy tale, and well worth braving the numbing temperatures for.
The city's complicated history is well reflected in its architecture, with numerous Russian, Chinese and European styles very visible. Zhongyang Street is an intriguing mixture of renaissance and baroque-style buildings. Harbin is also justly famous for its cuisine, a mixture of Chinese and European styles, heavy on the sauces and often fried.
