5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We had a wonderful day in this lovely city. Highly recommended. Although the drive to Sergiev Posad was taxing due to road construction.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2015

Not a first choice, but if you have done most things in Moscow, then this can be next. Because of traffic - the drive can take very lond - we drove less than an hour in the morning, but the afternoon drvie took us 3 hours!!! Our guide was not very talkative and we had to ask questions non-stop otherwise we would not have learnt anything! She also took us to the museum - was interesting.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2015

I recommend visiting the monastery on your own since it's not far from Moscow.

Rest of it did not interest me like rural history of Russian people and other religious teachings and history
