Russian Street is one of the few prominent places where it is possible to get a glimpse of Dalian's colonial past.
Walking in this 430-meter-long street, consisting of 20 Russian and European style buildings, makes one feel as if he or she is taking a stroll in an exotic European town.
Tourists can explore this street on foot or by carriage. Duty-free shops, supermarkets, antique stores and painting shops that sell East European goods line the street.
Occasionally, Russian artists performing acrobatics and ballerinas may be found dazzling crowds in street.
And as a culinary bonus the street is packed with restaurants serving different European cuisine.
