    What you need to know before entering

    by bakalapoe Written Jun 19, 2012

    Favorite thing: Any visitor before entering Mount Athos should hold, in advance, a special permit to reside and visit, known as “Diamonitirio”. The, so called, Diamonitirio can be obtained by showing to the authorized office a valid identity card or passport. The authorized office for the pilgrims (in Greek: “Iera Epistasia”) of the Holy Mountain is located in Thessaloniki (tel: +302310252575 or fax: +302310222424) at 109 Egnatia Str., 54622 Thessaloniki. The visitor will find it easily and very close to Arch of Galerius at the city center. The Diamonitirio can be obtained also at Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki (tel. +302377071422). Information requested is the following: full name, date of birth, passport number, issuing date and issuing authority. A special stamp/sticker is needed on the Diamonitirio. The price of the special sticker is € 25,00 for the Orthodox Christians, € 35,00 for heterodox Christians and for believers of other religions. This document allows the visitor to visit and stay for a period of seven days at any of the twenty Monasteries of the Holy Community.

    Medal

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Brotherhood of the Holy Monastery of Hilandar assigns visitors certificate of visiting the Monastery. I’ll paraphrase the text on it (‘cause I don’t know to translate church terms).


    MEDAL
    Of the Holy Emperor Monastery Hilandar

    Assigned to

    ALEKSANDAR J. BILIC

    Who visited our Monastery and gave away to the cradle of Saint Sava’s spirituality.

    In the year of the Lord,
    In the Monastery Hilandar, 4/17th* February 2002
    Administration, Archimandrite Moses

    (4/17 means 4th February by the Old Calendar and 17th February by the new one)

    On the top of the medal is icon of the Holy Mother of God Trojerucica (Three hands). On the left side is Saint Sava, and on the right is his father Saint Simeon Mirotocivi. On the bottom is “800 years”.
