Sergiev Posad and Tver

Dolls from these cities are some of the best made in Russia. Sergiev Posad has a long history of toy manufacture. Tver also produced many interesting toys and dolls and its name shifted from Tver (1135-1930), to Kalinin (1931-1991), and back to Tver. Located north of Moscow, Tver was formerly the capital of a powerful medieval state and a model provincial town in the Russian Empire. Sergiev Posad grew in the 15th century around one of the greatest of Russian monasteries, the Trinity Lavra established by St. Sergius of Radonezh. It was named Sergiev (1919-1930) and Zagorsk (1930-1991).
