Harbin is a city that reminds of the once deep ties between China and former Soviet Union and Volga Manor is one of many such landmarks that symbolizes the tie. The manor, distinctively Russian in theme and style is located on the banks of Ashi River in Xiangfang district. It had seen some deterioration during the Cultural Revolution but was restored to its original design by Russian architects. It is said that they imported authentic Pine wood from Russia and not a single nail was used in its restoration. The manor offers a marvellous view with a huge expanse of gardening and marsh land. A beautiful place if you like to have a taste of Russia without crossing the border.

Volga Manor Reviews & Ratings
A rather large estate that has been designed to incorporate as much Russian style architecture as possible. I guess you can think of it as a Russian themed park of sorts, with the "western" restaurant serving Russian cuisine inspired fare, dance shows etc. The hotel within the compound is mediocre at best. The rooms were alright in terms of comfort and amenities, but really nothing truly inspiring or memorable. As we visited during the winter season, the lake froze over, and being able to walk across and explore was nice. There were some winter related activities, but I would think that during the warmer months, there will probably be more to do. Suitable for a short stay, and I enjoyed the change in scenery, but I would not recommend staying an extended duration during winter, since there really isn't that much to keep you entertained for long.
Recommended place to visit with your family... I am not sure if really there was an ancient Russian Town at this place or Chinese made it up but you can spend a good time with your family. Entry ticket of this place is 100 RMB but you can get 30 RMB discount on a student card. Do enjoy Russian Folks dance performance starting around 11 AM in the morning. Also, you can rent bicycle for minimum 30 RMB per hour. Alert! no halal food available, at least I couldn't find it but yeah there are some bakery products in different restaurant if you want to try.
I came here in early spring. Not that much green land. Good to escape hot summer to enjoy riding a bike here. Very large area, if you wanna walk around you have to take long time. But its early spring, not that beautiful (Early May, 2019)
Love the place. Peaceful and beautiful.
Not your typical amusement park. There's a lot of miniature building in this park. But there's not enough fun provided for kids. Suitable for you who want to take great photos. There is a hotel inside the volga manor area, it is pretty standard, not typical resort hotel, but the area is pretty quite and peaceful at night.
