Macedonia : Mount Athos
Mount Athos (???? ???? Ayio Oros, classically ????? ???? Agion Oros)) is a mountain and a peninsula in Macedonia, northern Greece.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this peninsula of 390 km² houses some 1,400 monks in 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries. An autonomous state under Greek sovereignty, entry into the area is strictly controlled and only male monks are allowed to live there.
A fair bit of advance preparation and battling with bureaucracy is necessary to visit Mount Athos.
Diamonitiria (permit to reside) are issued by the offices of Mount Athos, at Ouranoupolis (on the right side of the port). In order to get their diamonitirio visitors must show their identity cards and pay the sum of €18 (Orthodox visitors) or €35 (non-Orthodox). Foreign visitors also need:
