When I got here, I saw that the statue was quiet.
Saint Sergey Radonezhsky, the founder of the Monastery of the Holy Martyrs, is an outstanding religious activist. In 1337, he established a small church in the jungle and lived in seclusion. He advocated collective accommodation and monasticism. The number of monks who followed him gradually increased, and it gradually developed into the largest and richest monastery in Russia. The monastery not only owned a large area of land, but also stored a large amount of food, weapons and ammunition, becoming a defensive position in the north of Moscow at that time. In 1608, the Polish army besieged Sergeyev, trying to open the gap to Moscow from here, but was stubbornly blocked here for 16 months, and the monastery became a banner of Russia's unyielding spirit. It was awarded the title of Great Monastery in 1744, and it is the representative of the Northeast Rus classical architectural complex.
The green-roofed monastery is very beautiful, and the frescoes in the monastery are often more beautiful! You can enjoy the murals. Although the monastery is a bit far away from the city, it is still worth it. The scenery along the way is good, and the building itself is very beautiful.
