The Trinity Lavra in Sergiev Posad is a part of the legendary Golden Ring of Russia and a unique architectural masterpiece protected by UNESCO World Heritage organization. It is the main acting Orthodox monastery (also called "Russian Vatican") which played a significant role in the history of Russia.
Sergiev Posad is situated 75 km to the northeast from Moscow.
The monastery was founded by Sergius of Radonezh, a 14th century monk from Rostov. His ascetic and pious existence attracted numerous followers. The small hermit's retreat gradually grew into a monastery with a settlement around it. In 1782 the settlement got a status of a town and was named "Sergiev Posad", that literally means "Village of Sergius".
