There are many "protected" buildings in Harbin that were built by the Russians about 100 years ago.  There are numerous churches in Harbin that were built as Russian Orthodox Churches.  Some of these buildings and churches survived the ravages of war, revolution and cultural revolution and many did not.

There are numerous Russian restaurants in the city as well -- some authentically Russian -- staffed by and owned by  Russian and many ersatz copies of Russian restaurants that are quite as good.

You can spend days and days looking at the old buildings.  A walk down Central Avenue is about the place to start.  Just do a search on google for Russian Harbin or on youtube if you can access it and you will see.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
