Vladimir, Suzdal and Sergiev Posad Ultimate Day Trip

I normally advise against visiting Vladimir and Suzdal on a day trip because it involves a lot of driving thus making the experience quite tiring. And yet, if you're short of time but full of energy and determination to see those popular Golden Ring destinations, it's absolutely feasible if we set off at the crack of dawn.<br>Moreover, it's even possible to squeeze in some other remarkable sights, first of all the town of Sergiev Posad with its magnificent monastery of St.Sergius as well as ancient Yuriev and Alexandrov which used to be the residence of notorious Ivan the Terrible.<br>Since I'm not a licensed travel guide, I will rather be your driver and travel companion during sightseeing providing all the necessary assistance and basic information whenever you need it.<br>My car is a Subaru Outback in great condition, perfectly comfortable for 3 passengers but can accommodate 4 (with less comfort, obviously).

Here rest the relics of the Monks Maxim the Greek and Anthony (Medvedev), the church is visited in little time allowing for a longer visit to refectory.

If you want a peek into what real life in Russia is like, Sergiyev Posad is the place to visit. I would recommend visiting the Trinity Lavra monastery complex. The frescoes of the Cathedral were really nice, done by some of the greatest icon painters of old Russia.

The design of the church is very beautiful. you should visit that when you are in Sergiyev Posad. IT is different from the ones in Moscow.

The Church of the Descent of the Holy Spirit, located between the Refectory and the Cathedral of the Assumption, is smaller but adds to the beauty of the Lavra.I could only see it from the outside as it was closed to visitors.

See my photo from the place on TripAdvisor. For me, there are just few places of spirituality around the world, like Lourdes, or Monte San Angelo. Believe me, Church of the Descent of the Holy Spirit is one of them.
