What awaits you
Sergiev Posad - history and legends You will learn how the city appeared, which will later be called the "center of Orthodoxy", what is its significance now and what path awaits in the future. Climb Blinnaya Gora and from the observation deck enjoy a magnificent view of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra. I will tell you why Ivan Vasilyevich built a fortress from the monastery and what role it played at the beginning of the 17th century. Next, you will go down to the Kelarsky and Banny ponds and see the very first urban settlement
Chernigov and Bethany sketes Since the end of the 13th century, Sergiev Posad has been called "Russian Jerusalem", since Bethany and Gethsemane, holy places near the Old City, are formed around it. We will go there in the second part of the excursion. The Chernigov Gethsemane skete will surprise you with its pronounced pseudo-Russian style, caves and a cave temple. And the Bethany skete is a temple with an altar in the form of Mount Tabor, where, according to the Gospel, the Transfiguration of the Lord took place.
