Visiting the most revered monastery in Russia with your private guide
Sergiev Posad is home for the most revered monasteries in Russia - which is called St. Sergius-Triniry Lavra. For centuries it has been a popular place for pilgrimages and nowadays is still full of believers.
Started out as a remote settlement in a dense forest, later it got closely connected to many events of Russian history.
I will tell you about Ivan the Terrible, Boris Godunov, Peter the Great and other rulers - the monastery played a significant role in their lives.
A Trinity-Segius Lavra is in the UNESCO Heritage List.
Me and the driver will meet you in the hotel. The way to the monastery takes 1-2 hours.
We will start the tour enjoying the panorama of the monastery from the observation platform and then will explore the monastery inside and will visit two cathderals there.
After lunch in a cafe with a monastry view we will go back to Moscow.
