The Catholic Church is a distinctive feature of the northern side of the Songhua River. It had snowed before my visit and created a great visual effect contrasting the dark brown/grey stone used to build the church. I wasn't able to get in, but enjoyed walking around. An old lady handed me some paraphernalia and taught me how to do... More

It is a nice church beside the river. According to my grandpa, it is built in the 1920s. People there are friendly.

Standing out from the rest of the buildings along the waterfront in Jilin City is this French designed catholic church. It is lit up really effectively at night and even in the daylight is a building of some character if not of any great age. However in February this attraction does not appear to be open for business.
