1. Each visitor will receive a book (free of charge) about Mount Athos (in English or German language) in order to have an overview about Mount Athos. Please, if you are interested to come, get conduct with me (Kleanthis Symeonides, E-mail: [email protected]) as soon as possible. The preparation for the pilgrimage e.g. license for entrance in Mount Athos takes a lot of time, only 100 visitors can enter per day and the demand is very high.
2. If you would like to invite a friend or relative of yours to join us its ok, but its important for him to be a serious person ready to participate smoothly in our team.
3. Please let me know, if any member of our group has any health problems.
4. A visit on Mount Athos is something unique that cannot be described by words. It´s worthy to live this experience.
