The Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius (Troitse-Sergieva Lavra) is considered to be one of the most important Russian monasteries and the spiritual centre of the Russian Orthodox Church. That’s why it’s one of the most often visited monasteries around Moscow.

    Oh Sergey, this is your best page in my opinion!! Your choice of music is exceptional and I am sitting here in tears because it is so deep, so good! And I like Moscow baroque more than "our" baroque.

    Fantastic page again! I've been to Sergiyev Posad way back in 91 when it was still called Zagorsk.

    Sergey, brilliant photos and helpful transportation tips. Sergiyev Posad seems to be well worth a daytrip by electrichka from Moscow.

    Great page! Lavra is only about an hour from our dacha, but we're going there second or third year... Special thanks for 'off the beaten path' tips! Irina

    You've certainly been busy this week. You've created another wonderful page Sergey. I was especially impressed with the Assumption Cathedral, the beautiful little wooden church and the massive Pyatnitskaya Tower.

    Another comprehensive and informative new page! For me it was interesting to see where Tsar Boris Godunov and his children Feodor and Xenia are buried, because I know them as characters in Mussorgsky's opera.
