Beautiful church tucked into a quiet neighborhood. I wish I could have attended a service. It is not far from the bus stop, but cannot be seen from the stop.

In a lovely neighborhood near Eaux Vives, this beauty has been restored and is worth a visit. Check hours to go inside.

This beauty of architecture is a great landmark of Geneva and has been recently restored inside and outside. It is absolutely worth the visit. This church is a great reminder of the friendship between Geneva and Russia.
