What You'll Do
  • Take a journey through the real Russian country side
  • Explore the monastery of Sergiev Posad
  • Discover the heart of the Russian religious experience
Overview
Visit the Sergiev Posad Monastery, the religious capital of Russia that offers a beautifully restored Monastery, as well as a taste of what smaller towns in Russia are like.
What to Expect
You are picked up at your hotel in the morning and start your journey through the real Russian country side. You arrive to the Monastery in 2 hours and start the excursions which takes 1.5 hours. Then you will have 1 hour time to walk around and to take pictures.

The monastery of Sergiev Posad played an important role in the history of the Russian state and in the development of the national culture. In 1993, the architectural ensemble of the monastery was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Numerous Lavra buildings, constructed during the 15th - 19th centuries by the best masters of Russia, are a kind of visual aid on the history of Russian architecture. A visit to the Monastery, with its working Trinity and Assumption Cathedrals decorated by the famed Andrei Rubilyov, is a journey to the heart of the Russian religious experience. At the end of your excursion, the car and guide will bring you back to the hotel.
