  • The Trinity Church is the oldest of the two main cathedrals of the Trinity monastery of St. Sergio. Built in the fifteenth century when the saint became patron of the Russian state, it preserves its remains. Elegant architecture in its simplicity.

  • The laurel of the Trinity St-Serge is the spiritual center of the Russian Orthodox Church, given for the oldest in the country. It is an architectural ensemble comprising the Cathedral of the Dormition and that of the Assumption. Within it, the second home of the Patriarch of Moscow. One feels almost intimidated in front of so much magnificence and majesty. Here, the buildings are all white outside with their bright blue and gold bulbs but the treasures of colorful frescoes, icons and various ornaments are present in large numbers. The visit to the former refectory of the monks is not to be forgotten as the huge frescoes of the walls and ceiling are exceptional. Despite the visits, there is a calm, a serenity among the flower beds and wide alleys that invite strolling and reflection. From the much-vaunted Cities of the Golden Ring, it is the one that takes precedence over all.

  • Good organization. The queue to the relics moves calmly. The minister personally accepts health notes at the end of the queue. There are no notes about the resting place. Candles can be taken independently, money to donate if possible.

  • Trinity Cathedral is the most important temple of the Trinity-Sergieva Lavra. Its supremacy over the rest of the cathedrals in the laurel is emphasized by the gilded pocomar coating and the fact that it connects directly with the Holy Gate. The temple is small, the top of the cross is only at an altitude of 30 meters, but it looks like a fundamental, powerful, strong structure. The shapes of the white-stone cathedral are unpretentious and strict, the walls are tilted inside, laconic in the decoration of the walls-white-stone colored belts-make the architecture perfect. Falling through ten narrow windows of the dome scattered light illuminates the iconostasis, fresco paintings, pillar and wall kiots.
