Virtual Tour of the Monasteries on Mount Athos Available Online team | 03 May 2020

The faithful now have an opportunity to visit the Holy Mount Athos online. Virtual panoramas of twenty monasteries of the Holy Mount Athos are now available on a new website. Panoramas of more sketes and cells and those of three caves will become available soon.

The virtual tours can be found on the website, where the 360-degree panoramas are accompanied by a short history and photos of the place, reports

The authors’ motivation was “to display the Athonite monasticism and the Orthodox monastic spirituality, for the glory of God”, the website states. Their project is the result of three years of work.

The aim of this effort is the creation of a global historical documentary with virtual access for everyone, including women, who do not have access on the Mount, the disabled and those who do not have the financial capacity to travel.

The website is in three languages: Greek, English and Russian and it contains links to the Orthodox church organizations performing social work and evangelization missions – for the visitors who wish to support them.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
