A modern architecture with a perfect fusion of russian orthodox churches. The building outside is unique and marvellous attracting the sight seeing from far when on the river Seine bridge. It composes a beautiful scenery with Eiffel tower and the river.
The simple square sandy walls and the gold bulbs on top are so stunning.
Unfortunately I was not there at the time I could visit inside. You may plan to go after 2pm. The guard at the entrance a nice Russian man made my day with a great conversation of 15minutes.

Every time I visit Paris I find something new. This time it was the case with this ultra modern Orthodox Cathedral.
I was really shocked when I saw it 10 min away from the Eiffel, so wanted to explore.
This Russian Church opened only 4 y ago and I have mixed impressions about it. While such avangarde style fits Paris, I don't find the same for the Russian Orthodox Church.

I don't expect a holy and spiritual place to be set in such modern architecture. As I was walking along Quai Branly, I was drawn by the golden domes set upon stark vertical concrete walls. I saw a sign saying "Cathedral Open" so in I went - cleared security and found myself immersed in a wonderfully spiritual experience. Followers of the Russian Orthodox faith were taking communion and seemed unperturbed by the onlookers littered around the walls. The chanting was enchanting - musical yet deeply moving. I felt like a imposter but was tolerated. It was an unexpected, serendipitous and existential moment in my visit to Paris.

An impressive, modern building in Paris by architect Jean Wilmotte. The entrance is free and you will be amazed by the ornaments inside the cathedral. It's a true work of art which opened its doors in 2016. It's very near to the Eiffel tower, so you can easily combine the two to have a cultural and spiritual experience.

A truly beautiful choir, great reverence and a spiritual atmosphere. It’s easy for those of us who are Orthodox, but the atmosphere was welcoming and very family friendly for any visitors. They have a lovely gift shop and the attached art gallery had a program but didn’t open until 2pm.

This is an interesting piece of architecture, but it left me with mixed feelings about it. Yes, their golden domes shining on the pale skies of Paris are really beautiful when you see them at a distance. In adittion, I think that a brand-new contemporary religious building is supposed to strongly appeal one´s attention somehow, as this kind of architecture seems to belong to the past. In this particular case, I would say, to start with, that the service provided to the public was so-so, they didn´t comply well with opening hours, the public were left stranded in the street for almost half an hour before they opened the doors.
As far as the interiors are concerned, this church has beautiful simple and spacious lines, remarkable icons and an enormous chandelier, but I was really taken aback about the rest. There is a wall, supposed to be the main element, with colourful paintings, but it looked fake -as if made of plaster or bricks- and it doesn´t raise up to the ceiling: apparently the building has another wing behind it. On this wall, the so-called marble columns, as well as its carved moldings are painted or perhaps printed. I found it all strange, but I guessed it´s just a temporary solution, as if the church wasn´t completed yet. Nonetheless, most of the public I saw there seemed to come just for devotion, unperturbed by the tourists, so apparently they didn´t pay any attention to the artistic or architectural aspects of the place, as an common onlooker. All in all, I would call this a original place, but not a must.

Walking down Avenue Rapp I was intrigued by the silver-gold domes shining in the sun. On closer investigation this large and modern concrete complex turned out to be a new Russian orthodox cathedral, inaugurated in October 2016 and designed by French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Though I was there outside normal visiting hours (as indicated on the website) the door was open and plenty of people were coming in and out - it was Friday morning. A security guard went through all my bags, and said it was OK to take photos if I didn't use the flash. Once inside the cathedral, I was surprised by its small space - full of priests miling around, one up a ladder, people taking communion, and visitors - there was also a group visit. So I did not feel any hallowed atmosphere. However, with the white walls, numerous icons and beautiful decoration I was impressed. There were a few benches so it was possible to sit down for a while and take in the scene.
The website is in French and Russian.

An unusual church building in the city. It's right on the river in a wealthy area and it serves the Russian community. Take a look.

Intriguing building with quite mixed feelings about it. On the one hand it's really an eye-catcher, but on the other hand I'm not really sure whether it should be, and if yes than is for a right reason.
