This tour is an excellent opportunity to travel outside Moscow and to visit one of Russia's most remarkable sights.

Trinity Lavra in Sergiev Posad, one of the holiest monasteries of the Russian orthodox church, represents a magnificent architectural ensemble of XV through XIX century, whose panoply of towers and domes rivals the Kremlin's.

Founded by St. Sergius in the middle of the XIV c. the monastery soon became a spiritual bastion and a military stronghold at the same time, and later played a key role in Russian politics in several critical moments.

Today, after last year's celebrations of St. Sergius' 700 anniversary, the Lavra is in its full splendour that we are going to admire.

/Guided tours inside the monastery walls are only allowed by their own guides. I'll interpret for you if they don't speak English/
