About the tour
Largest monastery of Russia and countryside.

Don't miss an opportunity to break out of the city's hustle and bustle and spend a day travelling through Russian countryside and watching a local life and resting your eyes on our boundless forests and fields.

We don't need to drive too far, just 70 miles northward of Moscow where the town of Sergiev Posad located. It's famous for the most sacred and largest monastery in Russia, St. Sergius Holy Trinity Lavra.

The monastery was founded in the mid-14th century and its actual brotherhood is close to 300 monks. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it's a true citadel of harmony and beauty!

Drive to Sergiev Posad is 1 or 1. 5 hour one way, and we are able to stop on the way to take a look at an ordinary village where locals live all year around. Visit to the Lavra takes about two hours and after some free time for you to have a lunch and buy souvenirs at local market we go back to Moscow.

If time allows, on the way back we can make a stop near the Soviet-era VDNkh Park to take a short walk around it.
