Odessa Athos rekening

A bill from a hotel in Odessa for a Russian Athos pilgrim – 1915

When visiting Mount Athos many monateries or sketes require an advance reservation if you want to stay there overnight. Currently these 13 places need a reservation:

Vatopedi
Iviron
Karakalou
Koutloumousiou
Pantokratoros
Xenophontos
Xeropotamou
Simonopetra
Grigoriou
Stavronikita
Panteleimonos
St Anne’s
Nea Skete
Russikon brief 1919
A letter from Roussikon – 19??
A night at the winery of Mylopotamos of Father Epifanos also needs a reservation: this will cost you € 50,00, including diner and wine.
Until recently non-orthodox pilgrims were not allowed to sleep at Skiti Prof. Eliou, in September 2013 I will try to find out if this is still the case.

The Friends of Mount Athos-site helps you with a bilingual PDF-reservation request, to be downloaded/seen here.  
Do not try to call on Sundays or great holidays (look here for the telephone numbers).

A leaflet or Dipiscia (?)= summary, to order you prayers, of Bogoroditsa: compare it with the one I found in Timiou Stavrou kellion.
