Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Paris

POI: 48.877558, 2.301992
The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (French: Cathédrale Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky, Russian: Собор Святого Александра Невского) is a Russian Orthodox cathedral church located at 12 rue Daru in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. It was established and consecrated in 1861, making it the first Russian Orthodox place of worship in France. It is the see of the Patriarchal Exarchate for Orthodox Parishes of Russian Tradition in Western Europe, under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. It was built in part through a gift of 200,000 francs from Tsar Alexander II. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral has not been aligned with the Patriarch of Moscow since the Russian Revolution. The Patriarch of Moscow supports Saint Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, under construction on the Quai Branly and financed by Vladimir Putin's government. The closest métro station is Courcelles
