Visit amazing churches and take wonderful photographs. Best in early morning. Avoid those busloads of packaged tourists. When we where about to leave, 3 busloads of Chinese tourists showed up .... Visiting time is about 3 hours.

This is the center of the Orthodox faith, and Russia's most important pilgrimage site. The paintings and colorful environment makes this a well worth side trip from Moscow.

I think if you contact the monastery directly via email, they can tell you their schedule: This site will not allow me to post the email address. Just google it (Sergiev Posad monastery). Good luck!
