Clearing of the area near the monastery road

On 13 April 2019, the staff of the Holy Metropolis of Abkhazia and the parishioners of the New Athos Monastery, under the leadership of Archimandrite Dorotheos (Dbar), cleared the territory adjacent to the monastery road (in the upper part of Kurortnaya Street) from wild vegetation and dead wood. 35 people took part in the clearing work.

The leadership of the Holy Metropolis of Abkhazia appealed to the Abkhaz State Committee on Ecology and Nature Protection for permission to conduct sanitary felling of sick and dried trees, endangering pedestrians and a large number of cars using this road to get to the monastery and Orlinoye Gnezdo Street at the top of New Athos.

Clearing of the area was carried out after the inspection of the territory by specialists of the State Committee on Ecology and Nature Protection.
