What you'll do
An unforgettable leisure day savouring the 'must-see' of Sergiev Posad and its surroundings. Experience our curated highlights of Sergiev Posad just in a single day - a day out of busy Moscow - filled with Russian passion for history, its faith, the food, traditional craft and Russian art. … unlike any 'tour' out there! Enjoy a conversation while a privately chauffeured car (with AC) will take out our group directly to Sergiev Posad. There is a magical place just 80 kilometres away - Sergiev Posad, one of Golden Ring heritage small towns. Its main decoration is the majestic St. Sergius Trinity Lavra Monastery. Surely we will explore it. But few people know about the Chernigovsky Skete, a silent and peaceful monks retreat. There we can visit an underground cave church with a tour, run by a local monk, And we will try herbal tea with typical local pastries, baked with Holy Water there! Next stop is a local Folk Museum, where a museum owner will give us a tour and will explain about villagers life in old ages. Sergiev Posad is known as the birthplace of Russian nesting dolls called Matryoshka and we will paint our own Matryoshkas there, at a local craft shop! Absolute Fun!
Anton & Julia
Hi. We are Anton and Julia. We love to travel and visited more than 50 countries. We lived in New York for a while, so, you don’t need to worry about our English. Check our Instagram @moscowwithlocals We are not traditional busy "Tour Guides" with huge buses and boring historical speeches. Instead, we bring small groups of curious jetsetters and show them highlights of the Golden Ring from the perspective of passionate locals. And still, we know the area and its history well. We love the Russian countryside and love to find hidden villages, less known churches and monasteries. And want to share our knowledge and excitement with our guests!
