“The Sumela monastery (Sümela) will open its doors to visitors on may 18 after the restoration, during which it was removed four thousand tons of rock, paved 300-meter passage to the monastery, restored the ancient aqueducts, rooms and staircases,” – said the Director of culture and tourism of the province of Trabzon Ali Ayvazoglu.
