In the morning we continue along the Golden Ring to Kostroma. Kostroma is located on both sides of the Volga River and the high banks offer impressive views of the Volga expanses. During the afternoon sightseeing tour we see the city center with the well-preserved 18th and 19th-century merchant houses, the treasure of the town, the 13th cenrury Ipatiev Monastery with the Trnitiy Cathdral and we visit the beautiful Resurection Church.

We continue to quaint town of Sergiev Posad, where we visit the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, the most important Russian monastery and the spiritual heart of the Russian Orthodox Church. The whole Lavra was beautifully restored for the 700-years celebrations of the birth of St. Sergius of Redonezh. In the late afternoon we arrive to Moscow and check in at Hotel Azimut Smolenskaya or similar.
