Les Amis De L Eglise Orthodoxe Russe, Geneva
(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Uncover the sacred treasures of Les Amis De L Eglise Orthodoxe Russe, the city's Russian Orthodox Church. The ambitious building project was funded by the Russian Grand Duchess Anna Fyodorovna, who resided in Switzerland for many years. Since its completion in 1866 the building has served as an important spiritual landmark and community hub for the city's Russian population. Its classic Byzantine features, such as gold onion domes, differ distinctly from traditional Swiss churches. Go inside to discover brightly colored ceilings, elaborate icons, and heady incense, matching the grandeur of the building's imposing facade. Church services are open to all. To visit Les Amis De L Eglise Orthodoxe Russe on your holiday in Geneva, and find out what else Geneva has to offer, use our Geneva itinerary maker.

  • Nice view from the outside (when you finally find it), hard to get in, the doors were closed and there was no indication of the opening. Middle of nowhere.

  • The beautiful façade that appears in the guide, there is nothing apart from the top of the turrets. Inside, everything is beautiful, unfortunately, we don't have the right to make pictures. A nice discovery, but who will win once again the finished work

  • It was very nice to see and visit in the Orthodox Church in Geneva and hear Russian speech. The Church was reconstructed, but it is not much less visit. By itself is not very big, but fairly comfortable. From Geneva city centre can be reached by bus.
