View from Krepostnaya Chamber (Treasury Building) on the one of the tallest bell towers in Russia that was erected in 18th century on Cathedral Square - the main square of the Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra. This five-tired 88-meter unique tower was designed by architects Shumacher and Uhtomsky and the construction lasted from 1740 to 1770 during the reign of two empresses, Elizabeth and Catherine the Great.
