The Metropolitanate of Belgrade (Serbian: Београдска митрополија or Beogradska mitropolija) was a metropolitanate of the Orthodox Church that existed between 1766 and 1920. It was formed in 1766, when Patriarchate of Peć was abolished by the Ottoman Empire. The Metropolitanate of Belgrade existed until 1920, when it was merged with Patriarchate of Karlovci to form the Patriarchate of Serbia. The seat of the Metropolitanate was in Belgrade, Serbia.
