Russian Church - Review

The Russian Church in Geneva is quite a stunning piece of work. This lovely church with its golden onion shaped domes is a very popular touristic site in the city.

This beautiful church in white and gold is a stunning example of a mixture of Byzantine architecture and the Russian style of architecture. The pretty arches, the imposing domes, and the intricate sculpture of the palace are certainly worth seeing. The seat of the Greek Orthodox tradition in Geneva, it is quite spectacular.

Although it is open only for a short period of time on weekdays, it makes sense to add this one to your itinerary to get a sense of the varied types of architecture that Geneva is home to. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Geneva itinerary 2 days.

  • The Cathédrale de l'Exaltation de la Sainte Croix is a wonderful example of a working orthodox church, though much smaller than you can find in Russia. The church is open every day between 10am and 6pm in summer and 10am and 5pm in winter, though you would need to double check the timings on the site (in French and in Russian) of the church before making a visit there. The service is performed several times a day – the timetables can be found on the site of the church too. The interiors are of darker colours, maybe that is why the church looks smaller inside than from the outside. The piece of land it is built on was given as a gift by Geneva City in 1862 on a condition that as long as the church stands on the land it is free. Long before the Russian church was built on the plot (until about 15th century or so) it had been occupied by the Benedictine monastery of Saint Victor of which Francois de Bonivard, the inspirational character for the Byron’s poem ‘The Prisoner of Chillon’, was an abbot. The funds for the building of the current church was given by Grand Duchess Anna Fyodorovna. The inauguration took place on 26 September 1863. The church is open to everyone, though in summer women have to cover the head with a scarf and wear a skirt or a dress (no jeans or shorts allowed) if they want to enter the church.

  • Gorgeous Church, unfortunately you can not taking photo inside of it.

  • A stunning church! Worth visiting if you have time

  • Such a shame of the lack of information. From July 25. till September 22. 2017 the Russian Orthodox Church of Geneva is closed. Lets see if i can come back next year to Geneva to take a look inside.

  • Beautiful church.
