Khabarovsk: Has Anyone Been There?

Would like to know if anyone on here has been Khabraovsk. How does it compare to Kazan and Moscow? Thanks for any insight, perspective on Khabarovsk!

I've been to all three cities, but it's maaany years ago since I was in Khabarovsk. It has probably changed a lot since then. Summers were unbearably hot and humid, with hoards of insects. Winter temperatures seldom go below 20-25, but the wind chill can make it feel much colder. Spring can be very dirty when all the snow melts. The best periods are probably late spring or fall, although I saw lots of nice ice scupltures there in winter.

To me as a European, it's much more exotic than e.g. Moscow. There are lots of Chinese and Koreans in the city, and there are Chinese markets. I was mostly working so had little time for sightseeing.

That's amusing. Aren't many parts of Europe overrun with the above "exotics?"

Moscow will take those, and add Tajiks, Kyrgyz, Cubans, etc...in addition to other visitors.
:D! likes this.

Khabarovsk is unique! It can't be compared to Moscow or Kazan because it's just different! I have some relatives there so visit this region quite often. If you have some specific questions fell free to ask

Not to hijack, but how was Kazan? Do you happen to know if there was a beeline terminal to reload a SIM card? I’m arriving late at night and doubt there will be anyone working who can help me. Thanks!
