Specifically, archeological sites across the nation will not open on Easter Sunday, May 2, on Easter Tuesday, May 4, a day on which the May Day holiday has been transferred.

On Holy Saturday, May 1, the archeological sites will open from 8:30 in the morning until 15:30 at noon, while on Easter Monday, May 3, the current schedule will be observed.
