  • A place which, although sad, is a pleasure to visit: airy calm, interesting. There is a lot of peace there. Very beautiful Orthodox funerary monuments
  • A very beautiful cemetery for a guaranteed change of scenery. As soon as you cross the entrance it is Russia and the place is conducive to peace. A peaceful place in a large garden to take a leisurely stroll in a haven of greenery. Famous people in the world of dance such as Rudolf Nureyev and Serge Lifar are buried in this cemetery of Sainte Geneviève des Bois.
