One of the most significant places in Kostroma is the Ipatiev Monastery. It is known as the “cradle of the tsarist dynasty”. Once, it was here that the founder of the Romanov dynasty, Mikhail Romanov, hid from his enemies, while his coronation ceremony took place in the Trinity Cathedral of the monastery. Subsequently, the royal family often visited the Ipatiev Monastery and presented it with rich gifts. Today, they can be seen in the monastery’s museum. Yaroslavl is one of Russia's oldest cities. Explore the Spassky Monastery, visit the wonderful Church of Elijah the Prophet with incredible mosaic decoration. Apart from churches and cathedrals, Yaroslavl holds one of the funniest Russian monuments: a Bear monument. Since it is not easy these days to find a bear on the streets..this is the chance to make a photo with a Russian bear. The bear growls every hour, be prepared!
We continue our Golden Ring tour with a visit to Sergiev Posad and a wonderful sightseeing tour around the most cherished treasures of Russian Christians, including a guided visit to the spiritual center of Russian Orthodoxy - the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius. Travel back to your centrally located Moscow hotel. We expect a very late arrival to Moscow this day.
