  • On November 4 we went to celebrate the holiday of the icon of the Kazan mother of God in their area and at the exit decided that it is necessary to go to the laurel, only 25 km. From that church in the shemet, where they were. By the way, the church of the Kazan icon of the Mother of God in the schemet of the oldest, never in any years has not closed. Nearby the church, but the church itself since the 16th century stands!!!! It's as it is. Let's go to the laurel, put the car near the market. And I saw a tow truck running down this street. Locals know where to bet better. And visitors are recommended to wait for places on regular permitted parking places. Laurel always...

  • Visiting the monastery of San Sergio is particularly interesting because there are enclosed a series of Orthodox churches in which you can get an idea of the various historical moments. Interesting to see the going of young monks, certainly surprising to us Italians, as well as it is strange to have to be necessarily accompanied by a local guide. Inside the monastery the refectory is the most beautiful thing I have seen

  • The Sergei Trinity Monastery, also known as the Shergi Holy Trinity Monastery, the Holy Trinity Sergei Monastery, is the spiritual center of the Russian Orthodox Church, one of the most important monasteries in Russia, and the largest Orthodox monastery in Russia. . Located in the town of Sergiyev, 71 km north of Moscow. Created in 1345 by Saints Sergey of the monk Ladogne. After continuous expansion. There are many buildings in the courtyard that are different in age and style. It is now the seat of the Moscow and All-Russian Patriarchate. In 1993, it was included in the World Heritage List.
  • Sergiev Posad is about 70km north from Moscow and if you go by bus there is traffic but the experience is unforgettable. Monasteries, incons, everything there is to know about orthodox Christianity.
