We will enjoy a walking tour, visit 15th,16th and 17th century temples, will take a look at famous icons of Andrey Rublyov and learn about Russian history and about Holy Trinity Lavra Monastery importance in the spiritual and also political life of Russia. Along the way, you will have a chance to try a famous Russian Summer drink, called kvas (if your trip is during the summertime) with famous Russian pastries called pirozhki. Take a break for lunch in a nice cafe where you will have a chance to try dishes from Russian or soviet cuisine.
* After lunch we have an option to do something creative with our hands. If you like, we can do a mater class of matryoshka painting or church candles making from real wax. After our class we will have a nice walk around Lavra and will visit the fresh water spring.
* If we still have time, the final stop of the day is a Abramtsevo estate, a 19th century retreat for Russian writers and painters, a gorgeous place to learn about the Russophile movement and relax before transferring back to Moscow.
