Geneva, Chapelle Russe

At the other end of the scale is this amazing Russian Orthodox church, completely out of place in Geneva.

This is a building designed to very rigid (but not absolute) symmetry. When coupled with the beautiful onion domes, the effect is glorious. It's a pity, though, that so much of the church has been concealed behind the fence and hedge.
