To help you make friends with Khabarovsk before you visit, we've included a few helpful and fun things you should know about the area. Enjoy!
Khabarovsk is an education, transport, and industry center in the not-so-densely populated Far Eastern Federal District. It is a rather young city whose history started less than a hundred fifty years ago, but has already seen many revolutions. If you are not afraid of the low temperatures, you can visit Khabarovsk in the winter when the average temperature is minus-fifteen degrees Celsius. The nature around the city is something that you will enjoy seeing, but you have to be well prepared and such trips are not recommended for individual travelers.
You can visit some the local sights such as the Khabarovsk Regional Museum Grodekov, the Archeological Museum, the Museum of the City of Khabarovsk, the Military-Historical Museum of the Far East Military District, the Museum of the Amur Bridge, and the Train Station Khabarovsk-1 Museum. There are many parks where you can go for a walk. You can take a cruise on Amur and see the area from the great river. Be aware that cruises are not very cheap, but if you can afford it, you won't regret getting a cruise on Amur. There are enough places to go out in Khabarovsk and nightlife in the city is good but nothing very special.
Khabarovsk hostels have a very good location in the center of the city, which is a key factor, especially if you visit the city for a short time. It is due to the fact that Khabarovsk is a relatively long city, so getting from one place to another can take time (or at least, more time than you might expect in a city of its size). Apart from that, Khabarovsk hostels have very good facilities and moderate prices. Most Khabarovsk hostels are relatively new, and there are enough accommodation options from which you can choose.
