Blue-and-gold cupolas offset by snow-white walls, a color scheme that lies at the heart of the Russian perception of divinity, and Sergiyev Posad's monastery is a textbook example.
It doesn't get any holier than this in Russia, for the place was founded in 1340 by the country's most revered saint, St. Sergius of Radonezh
