This small town is home to one of the most important religious sites of the Orthodox church, the Monastery of the Holy Trinity. It lies about 70 kilometres north of Moscow and can be visited by joining one of the expeditions organized by local tour companies. The monastery is quite large and impressive from the outside, but its main interest for the tourist are some beautiful and atmospheric interiors. The town is also the birthplace of the Matryoshka doll, which you’ll find being sold in large quantities on stalls outside the monastery, and is also home to a toy museum.
