Khabarovsk

Khabarovsk (Russian: Хабaровск, tr. Khabarovsk, IPA: [xɐˈbarəfsk] (listen)) is the largest city and the administrative centre of Khabarovsk Krai, Russia,[3] located 30 kilometers (19 mi) from the China-Russia Border, at the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, about 800 kilometers (500 mi) north of Vladivostok. It also is the furthest eastern city with more than half a million inhabitants in Russia. The city was the administrative center of the Far Eastern Federal District of Russia from 2002 until December 2018, when Vladivostok took over that role.[19] It is the largest city in the Russian Far East, having overtaken Vladivostok in 2015. As of the 2010 Census, its population was 577,441.[9] It was previously known as Khabarovka (until 1893).[5] As typical of the interior of the Russian Far East, Khabarovsk has an extreme climate with very strong seasonal swings resulting in strong winter cold and relatively hot and humid summers.
