I just returned from a visit to Moscow and spent one day traveling to the Sergiev Posad Monastery. Unfortunately every building is enshrouded in scaffolding and some of the buildings are closed due to the construction. It was very disappointing and not worth the 2-hour bus ride each way.

I went on a full day excursion to Sergiev Posad State History and Art Museum Preserve in July 2013. Lunch was included for our tour (on premises) and it was salad without dressing and trout (fish) in a aluminum pouch cooked with rice vegetables. It was very good although the salad could have used dressing. We also got dessert and... More

I had been there several times in the past and I could not wait visiting it again now. But when we got there we were very disappointed: everything is being renovated, from domes to walls and you can see just lots of workers and machinery. Instead of hearing sacred hymns, there is noise everywhere. Just not worth taking the train... More

Massive Monastery Complex outside of Moscow. Not hard to get to - about 1 1/2 hours by bus or train. Walled complex of numerous churches from 14-19th centuries. Lots of spires, nicely trimmed gardens, relics, icons, and a full museum of religious articles. Cathedral of the Holy Trinity contains relics which are reverenced by lines of pilgrims. Probably is stuffed... More

Established by St Sergius in the 14th century, Sergiev posad is the vatican of the Russian Orthodox church and houses the holy trinty Cathedral where you can see Andrew Rublov's original icon.The whole complex is a pilgrimage for the devout and awfully inspirational for a tourist. The State history and Art Museun preserve is an amazing treasure hidden all these... More
