The book is a course of lectures on classical gravity theory (general relativity). The first part presents basic notions, content and main consequences of general relativity (GR). In the second part reference-frame theory and monad approach are considered to comprehend GR thoroughly. The monad approach is also applied to analyse GR problems and to describe the 5-dimensional theory of gravitation and electromagnetism.

The book is addressed to students, university teachers in physics and mathematics as well as to those who are interested in the geometrical approach to physics description.
