The '''Metropolis of Alexandroupolis, Traianoupolis and Samothrace''' is under the [[jurisdiction]] of the [[Church of Greece]].
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, three holy monuments, three holy monasteries, three philanthropic organisations, and 20 graveyards with churches.
The current [[metropolitan]] is His Eminence [[Anthimos (Koukouridis) of Alexandroupolis|Anthimos (Koukouridis)]], born [[January 2]], 1962, in Alexandroupolis. He was ordained a priest by the previous Metropolitan of Alexandroupolis, His Eminence [[Anthimos (Roussa) of Alexandroupolis|Anthimos (Roussa)]] in 1989. He was elected in 1993.
