Sergiyev Posad (Russian: Се́ргиев Поса́д, IPA: [ˈsʲɛrgʲɪ(j)ɪf pɐˈsat]) is a city and the administrative center of Sergiyevo-Posadsky District in Moscow Oblast, Russia. Population: 111,179 (2010 Census);[5] 113,581 (2002 Census);[9] 114,696 (1989 Census).[10]


Sergiyev Posad grew in the 15th century around one of the greatest of Russian monasteries, the Trinity Lavra established by St. Sergius of Radonezh, still (as of 2015) one of the largest monasteries in Russia.[citation needed] Town status was granted to Sergiyev Posad in 1742.[citation needed] The town's name, alluding to St. Sergius, has strong religious connotations. Soviet authorities changed it first to just Sergiyev in 1919, and then to Zagorsk in 1930, in memory of the revolutionary Vladimir Mikhailovich Zagorsky  ( ru ).[11]

The original name was restored in 1991.[citation needed]

Lenin's successor Stalin intensified religious persecution in the Soviet Union overall, and the situation perhaps became threatening enough to warrant the town to change its name in 1930 to Zagorsk, derived from the name of the Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Zagorsky, who was assassinated by rival socialists in 1919.
