Harbin, which was originally a Manchurian word meaning "a place for drying fishing nets", grew from a small rural settlement on the Songhua River to become one of the largest cities in Northeast China. Founded in 1898 with the coming of the Trans-Manchurian Railway, the city first prospered as a region inhabited by an overwhelming majority of the immigrants from the Russian Empire.

Having the most bitterly cold winters among major Chinese cities, Harbin is referred to as the Ice City (Chinese: 冰城; pinyin: Bīng chéng) for its well-known winter tourism and recreations.Harbin is notable for its beautiful ice sculptures in winter.
