Sergiev Posad was founded in the 14th century and grew around the greatest of Russian monasteries, the trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, one of the finest examples of the early Russian architecture. It grew in the course of several centuries and survived through the Communist era as a religious center. It has played an important role throughout the history of Russia and the development of Russian Orthodox religious art and culture.
