Romanian Patriarchal Cathedral in Bucharest is also the seat of Metropolis of Muntenia and Dobrudja

The Metropolis of Wallachia and Dobrudja, in Bucharest, Romania, is one of the main dioceses of the Romanian Orthodox Church.

History[edit]

The Metropolis of Ungro-Wallachia was created, in 1359, by Callistus I, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople as the most senior church office of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, covering the territory of Wallachia.

In 1872, the Metropolis of Ungro-Wallachia united with the Metropolis of Moldavia to form the Romanian Orthodox Church. The Metropolis of Ungro-Wallachia, who received the title of Primate Metropolitan in 1865, became the head of the General Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church. In 1990, it became Metropolis of Muntenia and Dobrudja.
