Blue and Golden Domes

Blue and Golden Domes

The beautiful Blue and Golden Domes of the main church, Assumption Cathedral, in the Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius looks very impressive. This Cathedral was built at the end of 16th century (1559-1585) by the order of Ivan Terrible. The church follows the forms of the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin which was a symbol of the state power.

Nowadays the monastery (Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius ) carries the name of Lavra that translating from Greece means "main and most important monastery". There are four lavras in Russia, but the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius (full name) is considered to be "Russian Vatican" and besides our patriarch's temporary residence is situated there.

Arthur was a perfect driver and travel companion. As a traveler who often hires private guides and drivers, I am familiar with the services offered in this market. Arthur was timely, polite and very well informed on all Moscow sites. All communications, either written or verbal, were done with an excellent command of the English language. Arthur also took over 100 pictures of my trip and sent me a link to a drop-box so I had access to them. I highly recommend Arthur for any business and leisure travel in and around the Moscow area.
