TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The Holy Trinity - St. Sergius Monastery (or Sergieva Lavra) was founded in the 1340s by Sergius of Radonezh. Sergius was the Father Superior of the Monastery, and he played a major role in consolidating the fragmented lands of Rus. This led to one of the main victories over the Mongols at Kulikovo field, near Tula, in 1380.
  • The Abramtsevo Estate is situated in the center of the Radonezh district, the motherland of famous Saint Sergy Radonezhsky. Today "Abramtsevo" is more known as the center of literature and art. The history of the estate began at the end of the 18th century. The owners at various times were well-known figures in Russia, such as the writer Sergei Aksakov and the manufacturer Savva Mamontov. By 1870, the estate turns into a true artist and philanthropy center supported by Russian art nobility such as Repin, Serov, Vrubel and Polenov.
