Harbin, originally a Manchu word meaning a place for drying fishing nets grew from a small rural settlement on Songhua River back to become one of the largest cities in Northeast China. In 1897, after Chinese eastern railway was build and the October Revolution of 1917 succeeded, many Russians and Europeans move to Harbin and built houses, schools, and shops in Harbin so, at that time, Harbin became an international city. Harbin local culture is fundamentally Han culture, combined with Manchu and Russian cultures. This combination of cultural influences impacted local architectural style, food, musics, and customs.
