My name is Sotiris Koikopoulos and I consider myself a friend of Agion Oros. I have been to Mount Athos many times. After visiting Agion Oros for the first time, many years ago I realized that over there one can find unprecedented calmness, tranquility, peace and even spiritual clarity. This has nothing to do with the religious belief of the visitor. One can enjoy the beauty of the environment, the richness of history and the mysticism of the orthodox religion. All it takes is an open mind and a will to embark on a journey back in time.
Having worked for many years in the airline business I have met many people from abroad as my travels were taking me all around the world. I realized that most of them did not know of Agion Oros. Those who trusted my enthusiasm and came with me for a visit, became themselves friends of this unique community and often return for a new adventure. So, that is why I thought of introducing to you this magnificent place, through this website and invite you over to share this experience.
