We've been to Orthodox churches before all over the world, but this was only the 3rd time we've been to mass. Always great listening to the cants being sung. The church needs some... read more

Only the top floor is actually the church and the bit that is open, lower two floors are private. Only open a few hours at the moment but worth a look and impressive outside

This is a church build by Russian emigres around the turn of the century and it is a window into another world. The Icons came from St Petersburg and are stunning. Check opening times as it is only open some days of the week.

We've been to Orthodox churches before all over the world, but this was only the 3rd time we've been to mass. Always great listening to the cants being sung. The church needs some help, but it's still special.

This very ornate building is situated at the back of the Grand Plage. The different colours on the dome were something worth seeing when the sun shone on it.

Fairly large on the outside, the church seems small on the inside. Not lavishly decorated, with a modest icon stand.

Visited the church in July 2015 - the atmosphere seemed like a mix of Russian culture with French environment - french ladies sitting and chatting near to the icons of saints, authentic interior, and still, Russian speech and faces.

This was the first Orthodox church I had visited, and it is interesting. It's a working church, struggling a little bit financially by the look of it, but in a way that makes it the more authentic. Internally it is quite small but has a strong sense of atmosphere. I'm glad I went to see it.

Not worth a special trip as a little run down but the leaflet they give you is very interesting about history of orthodox church
