Architecture of Khabarovsk

Churches and buildings

overcast 24 °C

A late start on account of us making the most of being in a luxury hotel. Brunch at a fantastic cafe (goumet sandwich, cakeand cheese cake $10).

Last night discovered the main street of Khabarovsk (Murav'eva-Amurskogo St) with its beautiful 19th and 20th century awrchitecture. Went back for photos today. And Khabarovsk has an entire street of beautiful musuems (Shevchenko St) - National museum, Art museum, State Sports complex and Military Museum all housed in magnificent buildings.

For anyone that cares - within just a few blocks you can see Neo Classical, Art Deco, Eclectic, Modernist, Soviet brutslist, Classical pre-revolution Russian, and others I am sure. Absolutely beautiful.

Another feature of the Russian city is the cathedral. Khabarosvk has two - surrounded by impressive gardens.
