SERGIEV POSAD TOUR

Sergiev Posad Tour

In 1380, Prince Dimitry Donskoy of Moscow came here to seek St. Sergius` blessing before liberating his native land from the Mongol yoke. “In the land of Moscow and all over the world there is no other monastery equal to this one…” - Archdeacon Paul of Aleppo wrote after his visit to The Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra in the 17th century. Nowadays, the Holy Trinity Lavra is the main acting Orthodox monastery in Russia which has always played a significant role in the history of the country.

Hotel Pick Up

Your guide will meet you in the lobby area of your hotel, Leningradsky Railway Station if you travel from Saint-Petersburg by ‘Sapsan’ train or any other indicated address to begin the tour from there. Please, bear in mind that for this tour we use public transport.

The Square of Three Railway Stations

We start from Yaroslavsky Rail Terminal opened in 1862. The existing building in Neorussian style (1904) was designed by outstanding Russian architect Fyodor Shechtel. The name of the station originates from the ancient city of Yaroslavl located 284 km along the railway from Moscow. It has the highest passenger throughout of all the nine Moscow stations, serving eastern destinations, including the Russian Far East. It is the western terminus of the Trans-Siberian Railway, the longest railway in the world.

Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra

It takes visitors about 5-7 minutes to get to the Lavra from Sergiev Posad railway station. There is a grand view of the monastery from Pancakes’ Hill (Blinnaya Gora). The monastery was founded in 1337 by one of the most venerated Russian saints, Sergius of Radonezh, who built a wooden church in honour of the Holy Trinity in a deep dark forest. Early development of the monastic community is well documented in contemporary lives of Sergius and his disciples.

Holy Trinity Cathedral

The Cathedral of Holy Trinity (1422) is the spiritual and historical centre of the monastery. It is the place where the holy relics of St. Sergius are kept in the shrine made in 1585 by orders of Ivan the Terrible. This is also the place firmly associated with another Russian Saint, the great artist Andrey Rublev. The fact that this outstanding master was responsible for the murals of the interior and that the world-famous icon ‘The Trinity’ was painted for this iconostasis determined an exclusive role of the cathedral in national culture.

Assumption Cathedral

The largest structure of the complex is the Cathedral of the Assumption dedicated to the Mother of God especially revered in Russia. The building repeats in its proportions the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin. The murals in the interior, recalling the Yaroslavl wall painting in their style, and the tall many-tiered iconostasis date from the 17th century. By the north-western wall of the cathedral there is the burial vault of the Godunov family.

Holy Water Fountain

The Chapel-over-the Well was built at the end of the 17th century over the spring, which shot up during the repair of the porch of the Assumption Cathedral in 1644. Many pilgrims were cured by this water. The first was a blind monk, whose eyesight returned due to this miracle-working water. Till this day thousands of pilgrims use this water for cure and consolation in their troubles. The colourful tent-like canopy over the cross-shaped fountain, which receives water from the spring, was built in 1872.
