This is probably the most important attraction in the city which is located right in the centre. It is a Russian-Orthodox monastery for men and was founded in the year of 1340 of Sergius of Radonezh. It counts to the most meaningful religious centres of the Russian-Orthodox church. The oldest building with the monastery ensemble is probably the Trinity Church which was built in 1422. But there are also many other cathedrals in this whole ensemble. Overall, there are 40 different buildings which reach from the 15th century up to the late 19th century. It is a very impressing place and should be visited.
