Sergiyev Posad Things to Do: 76 reviews and 160 photos

There is a giant, high fortification-wall around all of the monastery of Sergiyev Posad. The expression "Posad" means OUTside of the Kremlin-walls, so this monastery was obviously never protected by the medieval Kremlin-walls of this town and had therefore to construct an extra-strong wall for themselves.
Sergiyev Posad is a very popular day-excursion from Moscow for tourists and locals likewise and a lot of restaurations were going on still in summer 2009.

Directions: This wall is where the groups gather before they enter the monastery through the main gate.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
