Strolling Sergiev Posad

City Sergiev Posad, situated in Moscow oblast, has been a famous place for many centuries. In 17th century it heroically defended itself from Polish invaders, later Peter I hid there from  Streltsy Uprising.

And now it is declared to be in the list of World Heritage.

It takes 2 hours to get there from Moscow on suburban train (elektrichka).  On the square in front of the train station there is a monument to Savva Mamontov, famous art patron.
