The Holy Trinity Cathedral
Constructed to replace the wooden Trinity Church built by the Monastery founder Sergius of Radonezh. The Cathedral became a compositional center for the subsequently developing Monastery ensemble.
The walls made of blocks of white stone are unusually inclined towards the center enchanting the Cathedral monumentality, stability and uprising character.
In 1458 the brick church - Nikon Chapel was constructed over the tomb of Sergius's successor Nikon buried at the southern wall of the Trinity Cathedral.
The Holy Trinity Cathedral as you see it today dates back to the year 1423, but there was a much older, wooden church at this place before that. For people who are not very familiar with the russian-orthodox church it is really not easy to understand that various churches are built next to each other.
Unfortunately the Trinity Cathedral is very dark inside and so I was not able to take any good photos, although the works of art and the iconostasis would really be worth it.

Zaista više nemam reči pohvala za tvoje radove.
Prvo poštujem te ko prijatelja drugo volim sve što je pravoslavno i obožavam Rusiju.
Tvoji radovi čine da još više volim ovu našu bratsku zemlju.

It is superb this cathedral with these gilded domes which arise marvelously on this cloudy sky. I like much the relief of the unit and the treatment of your photograph which gives an interesting atmosphere. Pretty glance and thank you for the informative note.
With all my friendships and an excellent day,
