The main reason to visit the Golden Ring City of Sergiev Posad is to see its most famous sight - the magnificent UNESCO protected Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, one of the holiest places in Russia. Sergiev Posad makes the perfect day trip from Moscow and is probably the most famous destination just outside the capital, even among those who speak no Russian. It is also possible to combine a day trip to Sergiev Posad with a visit to the art commune in Abramtsevo.
