  • Very nice place. Typical of the Orthodox religion and Russian culture. The tombs are magnificent, the icons and quite fascinating offerings

  • Rudolph Nureyev's grave, like the great dancer and choreographer, is also magical being 'draped'with a 'woven rug' of brilliant colours that contrasts to the sobre traditional Russian Orthodox graves ...  more »
  • Nureyev, Galich, Bunin, Tarkovsky, Merezhkovsky and Gippius ... dozens of iconic names, military and scientists, the cadets and the aristocracy. Cemetery Sainte Genevieve des Bois-living monument does not accept the era ... Near the entrance is a detailed plan of the cemetery with the names buried there. For ease of information in Russian. It is impossible to get lost. In addition, it is very small. Silence leaves underfoot, clean and well groomed; and quite unusual for Orthodox cemeteries of simplicity. The simplest machine hour with coppers from Charles de Gaulle airport from the center of Paris-minutes 40. The second option-RER, too. An hour and a half with change on a bus in the town. Worth it, without options!

  • Visit a Sunday. Deserted alley, even in front of the magnificent tomb of the dancer and choreographer Rudolf Noureev, covered with a beautiful carpet tiled. Soothing

  • Znamenitejshee cemetery in the outskirts of Paris. Here are found the last shelter many compatriots. Although the cemetery and relatively far away from Paris, but it's worth a visit.

  • 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.
