Sergiyev Posad ( ) is a city and the administrative center of Sergiyevo-Posadsky District of Moscow Oblast, Russia. It grew in the 15th century around one of the greatest of Russian monasteries, the Trinity Lavra established by St. Sergius of Radonezh. The town status was granted to it in 1742. As the town's name, alluding to St. Sergius, had strong religious connotations, the Soviet authorities changed first to just Sergiyev in 1919, and then to Zagorsk in 1930, in memory of the revolutionary Vladimir Zagorsky. The original name was restored in 1991. Population:

Tourism associated with the Golden Ring plays a role in the regional economy. There is also an important factory of toys.

The Moscow Yaroslavl railway and highway pass through the town. Sergiyev Posad Bus Terminal is located in the city.
