The Trinity Cathedral (Troitskiy sobor) was erected in 1422 and is therefore the oldest structure on the grounds of the Trinity Monastery of St Sergius Lavra. Until the 16th century it was even the highest building of the monastery.
The Trinity Cathedral commemorates St. Sergius of Radonezh who lived in the 14th century. His relics are kept in a silver shrine inside the cathedral.
On the southern side of the Cathedral the St. Nikon's Church adjoins the cathedral walls. The church is dedicated to St. Nikon, who was the successor of St. Sergius.
The Trinity Cathedral and St. Nikon's Church are located in the southwestern corner of the Trinity Monastery of St Sergius Lavra.
