Destinations \ Russia European (Central) \ Sergeev Posad


Sergeev Posad

train from Moscow - 2 hours

  Headquarter of Russian Orthodox Church
(Locator); (Russia Tourist Map)...Sergiyev Posad city is a perfect getaway for a day or two. This town's magnificent 14th-century monastery and its history as the holiest of Russia's Orthodox shrines draws pilgrims from around the country. The trip serves as a course in Russian Orthodox traditions, history, and architecture. Church bells and choral concerts of a great quality. Even a small midday church service produces hypnotizing harmonies. The town also claims to be the birthplace of the matryoshka, the ubiquitous nesting doll. Visiting the monastery, matryoshka shopping, and wandering the run-down but charming streets are enough to make this most satisfying out-of-town day trip.
