Weather here is something of extremes; temperatures in the summer months (May - September) can push for the high 30s (68 F), yet in winter anything above freezing would be considered as mild. The temperatures sometimes plummet as low as -25C (-13F), earning Khabarovsk the title of being the coldest city of over half-a-million people in the world. As long as you wrap up warm, however, the winter months can be some of the most fun, with ice sculptures, open-air ice skating and other snow-covered festivities happening across the city.

The most famous building in Khabarovsk is the Cathedral of the Transfiguration, a giant building that towers over the city’s beach next to the Amur River. This is the third-tallest church in Russia, and acts as a beacon across the relatively low-rise city with its long white columns capped-off with brilliant blue domes at the top.
Believe it or not, this far eastern Russian city is home to its very own golden-sanded beach, fronting the Amur River. This is one of the most popular places to come in the warm winter months, and the area is also where you’ll find the city’s famous church towering over the sand.
There’s a long list of museums in Khabarovsk – enough to fill a good few days in fact. If you’re just to visit one, make sure it’s the Far East Regional Museum, set in a lovely red-brick building dating back to the 19th century. Inside, find a substantial range of displays and exhibits with items from around the Amur region.
Those who want to go back a little further in history should look no further than Khabarovsk’s Museum of Archaeology. The building houses a good collection of ancient ceramics and artifacts that have been unearthed from all over Siberia, many of which are hundreds of years old.
