Central Street, originally built in 1898 and dubbed “China Street”. It changed name as “Central Street” in 1925 and later developed into the busiest commercial street all of Harbin. It stretches 1,450 meters from the Songhua River Flood Monument in the north to the Jingwei Street in the south. In total there are 71 European-style buildings including 13 buildings which draw influence from Renaissance, Baroque, and Eclectic styles of architecture.
Both sides of the street are lined with impressive department stores, fashion shops, and popular restaurants. These days, Central Street has became a welcoming pedestrian street offering services for accommodation, recreation, sightseeing, and, of course, shopping.
With a hundred years worth of profound cultural heritage, characteristic European style, and glitzy night view, the street becomes synonym for romance, fashion and dignity.
