  • Do not icons! Thousands of tourists visit the monasteries of Mount Athos, and thousands of bacteria are waiting for you! The husband came out of the pilgrimage tour to Mount Athos and the next day got worse, diarrhea, and dehydration. Faith is of course good, but have to be treated with medicines that try to buy yet in Greece, the pharmacies do not work, are not available. Be careful!

  • In may 2017 carried out regular pilgrimage to Mount Athos. Go here already 5 years and can't get their fill of this wonderful place. This time rose to the top (2033m above the sea level). Unforgettable impressions! In the Church of Panagia, at an altitude of 1500 m at night the priest served the Divine Liturgy is, actually, words do not convey. See a movie about this trip, as well as on the previous channel on YouTube "Tula Pilgrim". We look forward to seeing you in a sharing of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

  • was lucky enough to get a visa (dimetrion) and visit this holy place. I describe all that saw there can be long, but it's all the same need to see with their own eyes at least once, especially impressed by the number of the Holy relics at Mount Athos and of course the Mount Athos. During this trip posjatil many monasteries, even visited the convent refectory Xenophon where tasted what fed the monks, without frills, but very tasty. The mountain was not raised, because when I saw the mountain itself near realized this NEED to GET READY, as the peak is not visible from Earth, it literally, where there ... in the clouds, and there's still the temple as saying, which is not visible from Earth even one word and it and a bit of the spirit of the intercepts. I hope in the next coming back and it is to be lifted, I manage to get the blessing of the Virgin and the visa again and planned. Separately, I want to tell you about visa (dimetrion), it costs 25 euros and we told Orthodox Guide, it may refuse without explanation, according to him, such cases are not uncommon ... Frankly, worried when waiting for this permission. Council pilgrims carry sticks or canes that I have had with a foldable (on Mount Athos when the monastery stores also sell them), took her on a trip because of a sore back, but it is very useful, on Mount Athos are inhabited by poisonous snakes and scorpions, killing whom the monks did not blagoslavljajut, and when going with a cane, create vibration and they quits. Athos wants to visit and attend by visiting Mount Athos frankly for myself felt that the main thing in his trip to Greece, I did.
