A beautiful building which could use some restoration. Like the Russian Orthodox church in Nice, a visit gives insight into a time in history when many Russians came to France.

Dating from the 19th Century, the church is now in a very sad state of dilapidation, with the paint peeling off the walls and everything looking old and worn out. It may have been beautiful once upon a time but it's difficult to see it...More

Only the top floor is actually the church and the bit that is open, lower two floors are private. Only open a few hours at the moment but worth a look and impressive outside

This is a church build by Russian emigres around the turn of the century and it is a window into another world. The Icons came from St Petersburg and are stunning. Check opening times as it is only open some days of the week.

We've been to Orthodox churches before all over the world, but this was only the 3rd time we've been to mass. Always great listening to the cants being sung. The church needs some help, but it's still special.

This very ornate building is situated at the back of the Grand Plage. The different colours on the dome were something worth seeing when the sun shone on it.

Fairly large on the outside, the church seems small on the inside. Not lavishly decorated, with a modest icon stand.

good location, nice frescoes, services on Sunday, but the pope sing on French. candles are for free. There you can get informations about cultural events in the town

Visited the church in July 2015 - the atmosphere seemed like a mix of Russian culture with French environment - french ladies sitting and chatting near to the icons of saints, authentic interior, and still, Russian speech and faces.
