SERGIYEV POSAD (Zagorsk) 2006

One of my favorite places near Moscow, the Trinity Monastery of St Sergius, was founded in 1345. it was renamed Zagorsk during the Communist era, returning to its original name of Sergiyev Posad in 1991.  It is beautiful in the snow, even better in the sun when those golden domes sparkle. It is 75 kms (47 miles) NE of Moscow.
