Twin City Harbin (China)


The city of Harbin is the capital of the Chinese province of Heilongjiang.

Magdeburg and Harbin are separated by a distance of 7,504 km.
The total area of the city is 56,579 km².
Harbin has a population of 2.54 million.

There is an interesting history behind the city of Harbin, which is located directly on the Russian border in Northeast China.

As the main dwelling of the Manchu people, who lived solely in this area until the 10th century, the region has been home to continuous power struggles. At the end of the 19th century, the northern area of Manchuria was occupied by Russia. Indeed, the city still has a Russian flavour to it, as can be seen in the Russian-influenced architecture situated in the older city districts.

After the October Revolution many Russians fled to Harbin. Following Japanese occupation and then the occupation of Harbin by the Soviet Army after World War II, it was not until 1949 that China regained sovereignty over the area.

The city has an abundance of coal and crude oil resources on which its wealth is based.
It is also home to many tourist attractions, including, for example: The Songhua River on which the city lies, Taiyang Island, Zhaolin Park and Harbin Zoo, which is best known for its tigers.

The Ice and Snow Festival as well as the Ice Sculpture Exhibition attract thousands of tourists every year.

Magdeburg formed its first links with Harbin in the year 2002.
