What awaits you
Epic Serpukhov Our journey will begin in the city of fortresses and a stronghold of spiritual strength - ancient Serpukhov. You will visit active monasteries and go up to the observation decks of the Old Town. Follow in the footsteps of St. Sergius of Radonezh in the Vysotsky monastery and admire the domes of churches on the four hills of the posad. We will find the hidden temple of the 17th century, drive along the Muravsky Way (one of the oldest streets in the city), visit the burial place of the warriors of the Battle of Kulikovo and figure out what the "Belt of the Virgin" on the Oka River is
Borovsk: Chronicles of the Time of Troubles Next, we will go to the picturesque Borovsk and look beyond the walls of the Borovsk monastery, which turned into an arena of bloody events in the Time of Troubles. Here we will talk about the Old Believers, for whom Borovsk became a place of exile: from Archpriest Avakum to Boyar Morozova. After that, we will visit a masterpiece of wooden architecture of the 17th century, the Intercession Church, built without a single nail. And of course, we will walk along the street, decorated with "frescoes" by Vladimir Ovchinnikov, an amazing local artist
Original Maloyaroslavets Our next goal is the city founded by Vladimir the Brave in the 15th century in honor of his son Yaroslav. On quiet streets, let's talk about the fate of Maloyaroslavets, which has repeatedly recovered after fires and devastation, preserving its original spirit. Let us also recall the battle under the walls of the Chernoostrovsky Monastery, which decided the fate of Europe, the emperor who fled along the Gzhatskaya road, and other vivid details of local history.
