History

The Metropolis of Alexandroupolis was originally under the Metropolis of Traianoupolis, later under the episcopacy of Ainou and the Metropolis of Maronias. In 1885, the city "Dedeagats" (Alexandroupolis today) split from the Metropolis of Maronias and combined with the Metropolis of Ainou.

In November of 1922, a Synodical decision was made under the Ecumenical Patriarch Meletios Metaxakis, founding the Metropolis of Alexandroupolis with various constraints.

Today the Metropolis has about 80 clerics, 61 parishes, 3 holy monuments, 2 holy monasteries, 3 philanthropic organisations and 20 graveyards with churches.

The current metropolitan is His Eminence Anthimos (Koukouridis) or Anthimos (Roussos) - ambiguity.
