Cordial meeting of Serbian First Hierarch with monks and nuns from Greece
The Simonopetra monastery is located on the southwest slope of the Holy Mount Athos, on one of high rocks revealed on three sides. The monastery was founded in XIII century by St. Venerable Simon. A great contribution to the construction of the monastery the Serbian ruler Jovan Ugljesha gave as a token of gratitude for the healing of his daughter.
The Main Cathedral church is devoted to the Nativity of Christ (January 7, according to the Gregorian calendar).
The nuns of this monastery work with embroidery.
