A few years before mr Gerard Koolschijn visited Panteleimonos my dear Athos friend Jan Paul ten Bruggencate payed a visit to the Russian convent.
Here are his pictures from 1969:The katholicon with the guesthouse behind it, just after the destructive fire one year earlier in 1968 – Photo Jan Paul

When I visited Panteleimonos in 1980 only 8 monks lived in Panteleimonos, six Russians and two Greek monks.
