The shining in the summer sun beautiful cupolas, towers and roofs of Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra in Sergiyev Posad, the top-ranked monastery and spiritual center in Russia in the background of a blue sky. The tops of the Holy Life-giving Trinity Cathedral (1422-1423) and the Church of St. Nikon (1548) behind with amazing gilded helmet-shaped and onion-shaped domes are in the middle of the composition. The roof of Metropolitan's Chambers and green colored top with the spire of the Water Tower (16th century) are from the left in the picture. The top of the colorful tent-like Canopy over the Cross (1872) is to the right of the picture. The roof of the Museum the Vestry of the monastery is behind the canopy.

Photo #109 taken on July 17, 2016, in Sergiyev Posad during a long-distance countryside tour to the towns of the Golden Ring of Russia with my dear clients from the USA, Andrew and Karen Green.
