  • Looks a lot more interesting on the outside than it actually is inside. I guess if you speak Russian then it's ok but otherwise it's just lots of icons. Amazingly detailed though they are, often gilt with precious metals and stones, the sheer number without any description in French or English rather numbs the senses. At least it's free!
  • Russian style church that has amazing architecture. You're able to go inside if you're covered, but not allowed photos. It's a nice place to relax.
