ModernHistory1 Mount Athos in Macedonia   Beautiful landscapes of Greece

Mount Athos (Greek: Όρος Άθως, Oros Athos) is a mountain on the peninsula of the same name in Macedonia, of northern Greece, called in Greek Agion Oros (Άγιον Όρος, transliterated often as Hagion Oros), or in English, “Holy Mountain”. In Classical times, the peninsula was called Akté (Ακτή) (sometimes Acte or Akte). Politically it is known in Greece as the Self-governed Monastic State of the Holy Mountain. This World Heritage Site is home to 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries and forms a self-governed monastic state within the sovereignty of the Hellenic Republic. Spiritually, Mount Athos comes under the direct jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

Skopjean riddle:
I know of Greek monasteries on Mount Athos, I have been to a few. I also know of a Georgian (Iberon), A Bulgarian, a Serbian (Hilandar), a Russian and a Romanian Scete, prophet Elias. Can anyone please explain to me what kind of dark and ages old conspiracy let the Mount Athos monastic community without a "Macedonian" monastery, IN THE MIDDLE OF MACEDONIA!
