  • a different place or we see the people of paris and the Paris region. I think it's the only Russian cemetery, but I'm not sure. Interresting and visit. We also have a beautiful Orthodox Church to visit also. I find that visiting churches is very interresting, I never miss an opportunity to visit when I was abroad. We also have a Russian restaurant that just opened has Holy genevieve of wood apara it doesn't have too bad (lots of waiting for a table)

  • I visited the cemetery some time ago, while we live for 35 years in the Paris region and 17 have 10 minutes of this place. Many personalities are buried there.

  • It is very nice and instructive to be able to walk in this Orthodox cemetery. Graves Russian, very different from ours, are magnificent. The heart goes to the grave of the great dancer Rudolf Noureev, a little more at the bottom of the cemetery. Go see!

  • 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.

  • History of Russian in Paris after the civil war. Lieutenants, colonels, Dukes, and other writers and others. Still it was not the worst part of society. Sad ...
