General Note:
Saint Sophia Cathedral in Harbin, a Russian Orthodox cathedral, was completed in March 1907 after the completion of the Trans-Siberian Railway. The Cathedral, originally a church, was built wood. Between 1923 and 1932, with a third of Harbin's population Russians, the church was expanded and was designated as a Cathedral. In 2014, the Cathedral remains the largest Orthodox church in the far east.
