Blue and Golden Domes

Blue and Golden Domes

The beautiful Blue and Golden Domes of the main church, Assumption Cathedral, in the Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius looks very impressive. This Cathedral was built at the end of 16th century (1559-1585) by the order of Ivan Terrible. The church follows the forms of the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin which was a symbol of the state power.

Nowadays the monastery (Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius ) carries the name of Lavra that translating from Greece means "main and most important monastery". There are four lavras in Russia, but the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius (full name) is considered to be "Russian Vatican" and besides our patriarch's temporary residence is situated there.

Arthur was a fantastic help to my parents and my mother in-law when they visited Moscow. My mother in-law has some mobility issues and Arthur could not have been more helpful in assisting with the wheelchair, ensuring that guards opened gates so they could drive into the red square and Victory Park, and that my mother in-law was able to see as much of Moscow as anyone else. My parents also had a great time and enjoyed Arthur's knowledge of the history of Moscow, as well as his excellent photography skills. Thank you Arthur!
