Travel Thursday: Sergeyev Possad

White, Blue & Gold

Sergeyev Possad (also sp. Sergiyev Posad), known as Zagorsk before the 1917 revolution, is a town built around a complex of churches that arose over the centuries surrounding a 14th century monastery. We spent about half a day looking at the churches before heading off to the country and our friend Valodya's dacha.
