4.5 22 Reviews | Add your review

The picturesque town of Sergiev Posad grew out of one of Russia's greatest monasteries, the Trinity Lavra Monastery. It makes for a great day trip from Moscow and can also be combined with visits to other Golden Ring towns as part of a multi-day tour. Here are your options.

Group Tours
Join a small-group tour for the drive from Moscow to Sergiev Posad, where you’ll learn about the spiritual and historical importance of the 14th-century town while seeing sights like the Trinity Lavra Monastery (also known as the Troitse-Sergiev Monastery), the Trinity Cathedral, and the Assumption Cathedral. You’ll save money with a group tour and meet other travelers from around the world. If you have a few more days, join a multi-day group tour that also visits other Golden Ring towns such as Suzdal, Vladimir and Rostov-Veliky.

Private Tours
Join a private guide to take the train or bus from Moscow to Sergiev Posad to tour the Trinity Lavra Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With a flexible itinerary, you might also see traditional matryoshka dolls at the Toy Museum, visit the Abramtsevo artists’ estate, or stop for a traditional lunch of Russian cuisine and dishes such as blini, solyanka, Olivier salad, or pirozhki. Other private tour options travel by car rather than bus and might include a matryoshka painting class or candle-making lesson.

Things to Know
  • Sergiev Posad is about an hour’s drive from Moscow, although it may take longer due to heavy traffic.
  • A seminary of the Russian Orthodox Church is still located within Sergiev Posad’s Trinity Lavra Monastery, so don’t be surprised to see priests in prayer or pilgrims lighting candles to St. Sergius.
  • Both private and group tours last about seven to 10 hours.
  • Women should be prepared to cover their heads when visiting the monastery.
