6 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4  For about two years Sergius remained alone in the desert, and prayer he prepared himself for his monastic vows. Later farmer and city dwellers used to come from all over for St. Sergius blessing and advice and then settled in the area of the monastery.

10 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Red Tower  To stress the significance of the Krasnaya Tower constructed over the main gate it was faced with white stone. The Tower was considerably reconstructed in the 19 century and subsequently lost its defensive character. A figured portal and superstructure were added.

11 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Pilgrim Tower  The Tower is situated at the break of two parts of the fortress wall. It was constructed to the design of I. Zhukov and I. Yakovlev in classical style as a gala entrance after the Monastery lost its defensive significance. The up-diminishing tiers are crowned with a tent covered with tiles, a lantern and a weather- vane.

12 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4  Inside there is a spiral staircase with 159 steps and five observation grounds for tourists. From them one can enjoy a nice view of the architectural ensemble and of the town stretching on the small picturesque hills.

13 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Duck Tower  In the north-eastern corner of the Monastery there was a granary yard which gave the name to the corner Granary Tower. Later it was called the Duck Tower. The Tower is crowned with a high red and white open-work structure consisting of four originally decorated tiers. The Tower combines power and impregnability with gala decorativeness. The proper correlation of the bottom and top fine proportions and light silhouette make the Tower an outstanding monument of the 17 th century architecture.

14 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4  The Tower is crowned with a small drum with a stone duck on a high steeple. According to the legend Peter I liked to shoot at ducks at the White Pond.  In the course of a hundred years the Duck Tower was used as a water tower and only in 1962 the water-pipe was opened.

15 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Pyatnitskaya Tower  The Pyatnitskaya Tower. One of the most powerful towers was called after the neighbouring Pyatnitskaya Monastery. It was constructed to replace the tower blown during the siege of the Monastery. The Tower has 6 tiers. Originally it was crowned with a tent- type roof and a watch tower.

16 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Cellarer Tower  Each tier of the Tower is a vaulted chamber with a powerful pillar in the middle.

17 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Onion Tower  The Tower was named after the neighbouring onion kitchen-garden. It was constructed as a defensive tower. In the 19 century the upper part of the fortress wall between the Water and Onion Towers was arranged as a gallery, and the upper tier Onion Tower was reconstructed into a pavilion providing a good view of the surrounding area.

18 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 Bell Tower  The first plan of the Bell Tower, worked out by the court architect I. Shchumakher, presented a three-tier structure. The construction was supervised by Moscow I.F. Michurin. In the process of construction it became clear that the height of the Bell Tower was not sufficient. In 1753 the new project of Michurin’s pupil D.V. Ukhtomsky adding two more tiers was adopted.

19 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4  The Bell Tower is built of brick and plastered, the details – cartouches, columns – are of white stone.42 bells are suspended in the tiers of the Bell Tower. The largest bell weighing 64 tons was cast in the Lavra. The Bell Tower with a cupola is 88 meters high.

In the Tower were the Beer and Kvas Chambers and mead was prepared. The deep stone cellars where supplies were stored were attached to the Tower from the inner yard.

It is also the place associated in believers’ notions with another Russian saint, the great artist Andrei Rublev.

25 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4  St. Nicon implored Rublev and his friend Daniel Chorny to start painting of the cathedral. The fact that such outstanding masters were responsible for the painted décor of the interiors and that the world-famous icon The Trinity was painted for this iconostasis determined an exclusive role of the cathedral in national culture.

26 Средняя общеобразовательная школа №4 The Dormition Cathedral  In the reign of the tsar Ivan IV, who had a particular veneration for St. Sergius, the monastery was surrounded by a stone enclosure topped by 12 towers.
