The Holy Trinity Sergius St. Lavra is the largest male stauropegial monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church, located in Sergiev Posad, the spiritual heart of Russia, with its unique liturgical traditions, singing, library and centuries-old monastic succession.
The Holy Trinity Sergius St. Lavra is a historical architectural masterpiece of the monastery - fortress, which is surrounded by fortress walls with eleven towers - churches and a unique entrance group with a gate church. The complex of the modern Lavra includes more than fifty buildings and structures. Shrines, cathedrals, temples, churches, chapels, monasteries, academies, seminaries, refectories, museums within the walls of the capital of Russian Orthodoxy.
