Sergiev Posad
The Trinity Sergius Lavra is the heart of Sergiev Posad. This ancient monastery was a pilgrimage destination for Russian tsars. Ivan the Terrible was baptized here. The monastery was designed by the best architects of Russia of the XV-XIX centuries. Once you are here, try and taste the traditional Russian monastic cuisine inside the monastery itself. Pike perch is considered the leanest fish and so it is most favorable here. Lots of salutary, tasty and unusual dishes are cooked from it. A good example is Monastic Stuffed Pike Perch
