    What to Expect
    The Troitse-Sergieva Lavra is the largest Orthodox monastery in Russia which is directly subordinate to the patriarch. The almost seven century old monastery today has over 200 monks living there and consists of almost 50 structures dating from various times. Among them the most famous are:
    • Trinity Cathedral, Dormition Cathedral and the Bell tower
    • Going to one of the oldest cities on the Golden Ring of Russia.
    • Visiting a functioning Orthodox monastery which at the same time is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    • Seeing an authentic Russian provincial city.Morning transfer from your hotel to Sergiev Posad, the driver will meet you at your hotel. You will travel via the Yaroslavsky Highway which leads to the unofficial capital of the Golden Ring - Yaroslavl. It should take about two hours to get there. Upon arrival in Sergiev Posad you will go on an excursion around the monastery led by a local guide. You will learn about the rich and fascinating history of the monastery and its founder and visit the main cathedrals and churches here. The excursion lasts for about an hour after which you will have two hours of free time to explore the city by yourself. You can try some real Russian cuisine in a restaurant next to the monastery or visit the city’s Toy Museum. At 14:00 you will depart for Moscow and at approximately 16:00 you will be back at your hotel.
