The Cathedral of the Exaltation of the Holy and Vivifying Cross, otherwise known as the "Russian Church", has dominated the Tranchées district since the second half of the 19th century. Located on a high hill, it is one of the most remarkable architectural curiosities in Geneva. For more than 150 years, its golden domes have been an integral part of the Geneva cityscape and the symbol of the Orthodox Church in Western Europe.
On January 24, 1979, the Geneva Council of State issued a decree classifying the Russian church as a historical and aesthetic religious building: the Russian Orthodox Church was declared a "listed monument".
This book tells the story of the Russian Church over the centuries and allows visitors to discover the peculiarities of its remarkable architectural style, the beauty of its decor and to lift the curtain of mystery that surrounds the lavish rites of the Orthodox Church.
