Famous visitors

Apart from visitors from all over the world, there are always special guests to the Mount Athos.
In the above picture you see the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr.Papoulias, together with the Austrian President who visited Greece formally the previous month.
Mr. Papoulias joined his visit to Mount Athos, where they had the opportunity to enter H.M. Iviron, to discuss with the monks and have a small idea of the ancient treasuries the H.Monastery holds for more than a millenium.
