Virgin Mary Nativity Church

Within sight of the Musée d'Art, on the high ground opposite, rise the gilded onion domes of the Russian Church, built in 1863 on the remains of a 16th-century Benedictine priory - at that time isolated on an empty hilltop - with money donated by Grand Duchess Anna Feodorovna Constancia, aunt of Queen Victoria and a longtime Geneva resident.
