Did not know the Cross of St. Andrew still exists as an Orthodox relic. Perhaps they could invite some Scots to attend the tour.

I was in that church in Patras a few years ago and saw the fragments of what is claimed to be the cross on which St. Andrew was crucified. The church also has some of St. Andrew's bones, or so they say--I don't know how that could be authenticated. I think St. Andrews in Scotland claims to have the real relics of St. Andrew.

Nor did I know about this. Very interesting. I wish I knew more about our Eastern Orthodox cousins.
