Description of Sergiev Posad

Trinity Lavra of Saint Sergius is a Russian Orthodox Monastery that is located 75 km (47 mi) Northeast of Moscow in Sergiev Posad, Russia. Sergiev Posad is probably one of the most famous and most important monasteries in the country. The monastery was established in 1345 by Saint Sergius of Radonezh. He is one of the most venerated saints in Russian Orthodox Church. In 1380 he blessed armies of Dmitry Donskoy to Kulikovo Battle. Sergius also blessed two monks and brothers, Peresvet and Oslyaba, to join the armies. This epic battle resulted in victory of Russian troops over Tatar hordes under Mamay. Additionally the monastery is famous for beautiful icons that were made by Saint Andrey Rublev who worked here for several years.
