This was truly a wonderful trip close enough to Moscow to make it a meaningful day trip. The drive in our van was very comfortable with lovely scenery. The Sergiev Posad trip throws light on the Russian Orthodox Church and the group of Churches, Cathedrals, buildings and gateways are an architectural joy.
