Trinity-St Sergius Monastery | Russia

The Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius is the spiritual centre of the Russian Orthodox Church. The monastery is situated in the town of Sergiyev Posad, about 90 km from Moscow.

The monastery was founded in 1345 by St. Sergius of Radonezh, a highly revered monk and the patron saint of Russia. The monastery started as a simple wooden church in an isolated area, but soon grew much larger.
