Russian Orthodox Church

Russian Orthodox Church

The Russian Orthdox church is a shining masterpiece of the Byzantine-Moscovite style.
The church was built with financial support from Geneva’s Russian Orthodox community. Its extraordinary golden onion domes sparkle in the upper part of the city.

In 1859, the Russian Orthodox community of Geneva was given a permit to build this church after Anna Feodorovna Constancia, the Tsar ’s sister-in-law, promised financial support. Dostoyevsky's daughter Sofiya was baptised in this church. The little girl only lived three months and was buried at the Plainpalais cemetery. The church, situated in the upper part of the Eaux-Vives district, is built on the ancient site of a Benedictine priory. The golden onion domes of the Byzantine-Moscovite edifice were renovated in 1966. This shiny landmark can be seen from miles away.
