"Alexander Nevsky Lavra (Part III)" Top 5 Page for this destination Cathedrals and Churches Tip by Canadienne

  Borodin Tomb

There are multiple reasons to visit the lavra ~ the cemeteries, the Trinity Cathedral (it's a working church, not a museum, and our visit on Sunday resulted in another wonderful experience listening to an Orthodox choir), and the overall visual effect of the architecture and green spaces on the grounds.

It's a bit further away from the city's core ~ but the metro stop is right across the street from the lavra's entrance. Take the extra time to fit this one into your visit.
