Arriving in Sergiev Posad, the first thing we do is go to the Chernigovsky skit. This sketch is the courtyard of the Holy Trinity Sergius Lavra. There are monastic cells, cave temples and a holy spring available for tourists. The Chernigov sketch attracts attention not only because of the caves, but also because of the unique architectural ensemble of the temples.
