Youhao Square

Youhao Square Youhao Square

In Chinese, "youhao" means "friendship". The square was built in the Tsarist Russia colonial period, and changed its name to "West Plaza" under Japanese reign. Later for the sake of commemorating the friendship between PRC and the Soviet Union, the name of "Youhao" was initiated.

After renovation in 1996, a giant "crystal ball" was set up. The illuminated crystal-ball architecture in the middle of the square is eye-catching. The five hands holding the ball resemble the solidarity of people from five continents of the world. At night, the colored lights inside the crystal-ball make it a dazzling view - it is popular with photographers.

The ball is said to stand for the image of the city as the "China's Northern Pearl", and the five colors of the "hands" upholding it represent the five different ethnic colors from the five continents.

The neighboring area is the entertaining and cultural center of the city dotted with numerous entertainment places.
