Khabarovsk attracts tourists with its original culture of the ancient peoples of the Far East, culinary traditions and festivities. The proximity of the Russian-Chinese border undoubtedly affected the way of life of the locals. To fully absorb the atmosphere of the city and its environs, rent a car and go on an exciting journey according to your plan. However, if the trip turned out to be spontaneous and there is no time to explore the sights, we advise you to visit the park named after Muravyov-Amursky, climb the Amursky cliff, ride along the Amursky bridge. Go out of town to one of the lakes to catch sockeye with your own hands, visit a fish restaurant and learn about 20 ways to cook fish and learn how to salt fern.
