  • The village of Radonezh-ancient Slavic settlement in Russia. The Church was built in the first half of the 19 century. The temple is considered one of the finest examples of the architecture of the Empire style. Creating a project is attributed to architect A.g. Grigoriev. The temple was decorated with just two: five-tier iconostasis in the main part and two in the aisle, and the biggest Bell in the temple weighed more than three tons. In Soviet times, the temple was closed and the Transfiguration course here in 1941 year even housed the Club. Even before the restructuring, in 1974 year Temple was renovated. The Interior was preserved unique 19 century mural fragments. In 1988 year near the temple was a monument to Russian Saint Sergius of Radonezh, who is now revered as an icon. This was done in honor of the 1000-anniversary of the baptism of RUS '. The monument is a trjohmetrovuju shape of the elder with a relief in its middle part boy with an image of the Trinity. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Here, as you pass by, always stand buses bring pilgrims and tourists. This place is connected with the life of one of the most venerated Russian Saints-St. Sergius of Radonezh. The Church itself was built in 30-40-years of the 19th century, is situated on a hill, and from there down to the river and the source of St. Sergius of Radonezh leads the wooden staircase, ibid. and a baptismal font. Next to the temple at the end of 80-ies of the last century monument, depicting a wonderful meeting young Sergius with the Holy elder. The artistic side of the monument are debatable in my opinion, although I am not an expert however.

  • Pages on the high Bank of the River lies the shrine. If you are coming from Moscow in Moscow, it is visible from afar. The temple is famous primarily because it is located in the village of Radonezh, where he began his Ministry Saint Sergius of Radonezh. The temple was built in the first half of the 19th century in the style of that time. Under the slide are holy spring and baths.
