‘Monastery of St. Sergius.’
The Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius in Sergiev Posad (formerly known as Zagorsk) is one of Russia’s most important religious centers. The monastery was founded in 1340 by the monk Sergius who united the country against Mongol rule. Closed by the communists, it was reopened after W.W.II as a museum and a working monastery.
