Church of St. Sergius

Church of St. Sergius

The church of St. Sergius of Radonezh was built in 1690-1702 inside Vysoko-Petrovskiy Monastery by order of Peter I (Peter the Great) to replace the remaining wooden buildings.

The Vysoko-Petrovskiy Monastery was founded in the 14th Century go Metropolitan Peter, Archibishop of Kiev and All Russia. The original monastery was dedicated to the Apostles Peter and Paul, but later, when Metropolitan Peter had been added to the company of the saints in 1327 (or 1329) its name was changed to the Petrovski Monastery. The monastery has been rebuilt many times since its inception. Until the beginning of the 16th Century all of the buildings were made of wood.

The Vysoko-Petrovskiy Monastery is an excellent example of Baroque architecture in Moscow located not far from Bolshoi Theater on Petrovka street. This monastery was constructed towards the end of the 17th century by the Naryshkin family, relatives of Peter the Great. The style of architecture we call by their name - "Naryshkin Baroque".

Arthur is the friend you haven't met yet in Moscow. He was very flexible in taking me to places I wanted to visit that aren't on the usual Tourist trail. He is extremely knowledgeable and always on time. He has a great sense of humor. He picked me up at the airport furthest away from City center and took me to the train, found my seat, put my luggage where it was supposed to go and checked to make sure all was well. His pricing is very competitive, his English is great. I loved his night tour of Moscow plus all the other stops we made. I am willing to give a verbal recommendation if someone wants to make sure that someone this good is actually available.
