Every time we come to visit Paris, we go to 12 rue Daru, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. The more often we get there, the more we are impressed by the beauty of this orthodox jewel. MUST SEE!

It’s surprising how many people – even those who know the 8th arrondissement quite well – have never been inside this beautiful Russian Orthodox Cathedral, or aren't even aware that it exists. It was here that, in 1883, the funeral ceremony was held for Russian...More

Not just a beautiful cathedral but also an active one — it has a busy schedule with daily liturgies and other festivities. On the day of my visit there was a wedding ceremony inside the cathedral, accompanied by beautiful singing.

An exquisite Russian cathedral is not what you expect when you think of Paris, but the history of the Russian community in Paris is a long one. And their gorgeous jewel of a church is worth seeing.
