''' Harbin serves as a key political, economic, scientific, cultural and communications hub in Northeast China, as well as an important industrial base of the nation.

Harbin, which was originally a Manchu (Manchu language) word meaning "a place for drying fishing nets", grew from a small rural settlement on the Songhua River to become one of the largest cities in Northeast China. Founded in 1898 with the coming of the Chinese Eastern Railway, the city first prospered as a region inhabited by an overwhelming majority of the immigrants from the Russian Empire.

Having the most bitterly cold winters among major Chinese cities, Harbin is heralded as the ''Ice City'' for its well-known winter tourism and recreations. Harbin is notable for its beautiful ice sculpture festival (Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival) in the winter, the largest in the world. url http: listening.gdufs.edu.cn web Article ShowArticle.asp?ArticleID 1192 title Chinese ice sculptures melting publisher BBC accessdate 2014-04-22 Besides being well known for its historical Russian legacy, it serves as an important gateway in Sino-Russian (Sino-Russian Relations) trade today.
