Sergiyev Posad Things to Do: 76 reviews and 160 photos

The refectorium is quite a large building, 85 meters long and it dates back to the year 1692 and was built for Peter I. It looks interesting already from outside with a facade that gives you the illusion of seeing a 3dimensional pattern, but in fact it is totally flat.
The interior of the Refectory is even more impressive and for a long time its main hall used to be the largest hall in Russia with a total of 510 mē.
There are wonderful paintings and decoration inside that building, see some of them in my extra photos !

Directions: You will find the refectorium / Refectory on the left after you have passed the entrancegate of the monastery.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
