    Steeped in history, pity we can not visit the Church! Before you visit to learn about the personalities, the trip will be even more beautiful! Some stelae are superb

    The Russian cemetery at St. Geneviève of the Woods where more than 10,000 Russians came to France as a result of the Bolshevik revolution of 1917 are buried, investigated numerous visits. You can see the graves of dancers, actors, painters, sculptors, writers, members of the nobility and other Russian celebrities who are buried (R. Nureyev, M. Vlady, I. Bunin, among others). Church surmounted by a blue bulb is being a registration in respect of historical monument. Of the people of other nationalities are also buried there. Many people come in this place by curiosities or simply to flowers on the grave of a loved one. The aisles are wide, and the graves very well kept. To visit. Place whose historical character cannot be ignored.

    At the cemetery are buried many famous personalities. But its location and condition of some grave sites leave much to be desired.
