Monastery of St. John the Russian (Euboea)=

The relics of Saint John the Russian were brought to Euboea by refugees from Prokopion (Ürgüp) in Cappadocia, after the Asia Minor Disaster in 1922. They are kept at the Monastery of Saint John the Russian in the village of Prokopion (the new settlement the refugees founded in Greece).
