Mt. Athos begins phased opening for pilgrims

(Orthodox Times) - Mount Athos will reopen on June 1 following the decision by the Holy Community.

However, the entry permits will be issued sparingly in terms of administration. Fifteen entry permits will be issued for each large monastery while there will not be more than five people in the sketes.

In the relevant encyclical, it is also mentioned that pilgrims will not be able to spend the night in other monasteries, but a short pilgrimage tour may be allowed.
