  • First of all very controversial by the former Mayor, she will have finally been able to see the light. And while the Government and the media are constantly demonizing Russia, I am delighted that this Cathedral is Russian. It reminds us that France and Russia are two historic allies and we can now place the installation of this religious building at the same level as other achievements such as the Alexander III bridge. Tastes and colors are subjective. The architecture is resolutely contemporary, but unlike the hideous Centre Beaubourg, the style here is very aesthetic and refined, relative to my taste although very austere. It reminds me of one of those Mormon temples found in the United States. This austerity is, however, largely compensated by its roof, which includes several magnificent, typically Orthodox gold domes that stand out in the Parisian landscape and which, in my view, embellish it. And I think that this is the ingenuity of the architect, on the one hand, to have created a façade that at the same time is based in the environment that surrounds it and distinguishes itself when seen from the opposite bank, and on the other hand, concentrating on its roof, completely unpublished in Paris, but all in sobriety and elegance in the image of the capital and which it will be necessary to become accustomed to see appear in the photos. The Interior is little spacious and relatively empty if I may say so. However the walls are adorned with remarkable paintings and mosaics in the purest Orthodox style. Really beautiful. In conclusion, I would say first of all that this Cathedral is a great curiosity that brings a little more cachet to the city. Then, that just as we have the Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the great mosque as major edifices of Christianity and Islam, there is now more balance between the cults thanks to this major Orthodox edifice. Finally, at a time when the Catholic religion has seldom been so abused, seeing a few crosses highlighted at the top of Golden domes brings a sense of peace.

  • Free admission. Little tail. The exterior is very interesting with domes and modern architecture. The Interior is clean but it's actually quite small; There are beautiful pieces but it remains quite stripped and "simple" Apart from gold. Very short visit.
