Archeparchy of Belgrade and Karlovci (Serbian Cyrillic: Архиепископија београдско-карловачка) is an archeparchy of the Serbian Orthodox Church, seated in Belgrade, Serbia. The head of the Eparhy is the Patriarch of Serbia.

History[edit]

It was formed in 1931 when Archeparchy of Belgrade was joined with the Eparchy of Syrmia-Karlovci into the Archeparchy of Belgrade and Karlovci. In that time, the city of Pančevo was transferred from Eparchy of Vršac to the Archeparchy of Belgrade and Karlovci. In 1947, Eparchy of Syrmia and Eparchy of Šumadija were excluded from the Archeparchy of Belgrade and Karlovci and were transformed into separate organizational units. The city of Pančevo was returned to the Eparchy of Banat. Although, the name of the Archeparchy of Belgrade and Karlovci includes the name of the town of Karlovci (Sremski Karlovci), this town is today part of the Eparchy of Syrmia and not of the Archeparchy of Belgrade and Karlovci.

Monasteries[edit]

There are 12 monasteries within the Archeparchy.
