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!

A bit of Russia by Rue Daru. A perfect place for a Sunday walk. For sure you like this place, it is very nice when Russian festivities are going on, for example on Eastern.

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.

You turn a corner and suddenly find yourself, not in Paris, but in old Russia. The little streets that hug the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral are in the style of pre-Revolutionary Russia. The Cathedral itself is pure Russian Orthodox and its choir is still world famous...More
