    Beautiful russian nature!
    The first church has been constructed in Troitskoye still in 1695. It is kept till now. Small, wooden.
    New church in Troitskoye is in stone. It is - about hundred years old.

    The place is famed for an ensemble of buildings featuring the styles of Russian manorial architecture that prevailed in the 18th and I9th centuries. Its layout was largely determined by the relief of the surrounding country: the hilly banks of the Ucha, broken in many places by ravines.
    For more information look at my VT-page Marfino.

    The way of a dispensation by Patriarch Nikon of landscape-architectural model of Sacred Earth subsequently was named by a topographical icon. It's almost miracle! Voskresensky Monastery in Istra-city is obviously one of the most interesting places in Moskovskaya oblast ant is really worth visiting... Istra
    Historical, architectural and art museum " New Jerusalem " - one of the oldest state museums in Moscow suburbs. It stores numerous historical and art values (archeological and ethnographic collections, Russian and foreign graphic and decorative art, icon-paintings, obverse and ornamental sewing, documents, hand-written and rare printed books, copper moulding, subjects of life of different epoch). But the main object of studying and exhibiting is the monastic ensemble - history of its creation, architectural and art advantages, process of its restoration.

    Sergiev Posad

    by aliante1981 Written Jan 4, 2004

    Sergiev Posad is one of the Golden Ring towns and is the major religious centre in Russia. Itýs easy to get to ý just an hour away from Moscow, and thus makes a convenient day (or half-day) trip.

    The star attraction is the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, a monastery founded by St. Sergij Radonezhskij ý the most revered Russian saint. For those who are not very interested in religion, the place offers fine architecture, interesting museums, tombs of several famous figures (like the Godunov family) and an insight into the history of the Russian state and art.

    I have already made some tips on my Sergiev Posad pge, though this page is still a fair way from what I would like it to be.

    Here I will add just another brief note: when you go, it is just well to remember that loads of people come there to pray, and this has to be respected, though I somewhat grumbled myself when I could not get in somewhere as quickly as I would have liked toý
