Description

The Catholic Archdiocese of Belgrade (Latin: Archidioecesis Belogradensis; Serbo-Croatian: Beogradska nadbiskupija; Hungarian: Belgrádi főegyházmegye) is an archdiocese located in the city of Belgrade in Serbia.

History

In order to regulate status of local Catholic Church, the government of the Kingdom of Serbia concluded official Concordat with Holy See on 24 June 1914. By the Second Article of Concordat, it was decided that regular Catholic Archdiocese of Belgrade shall be created. Because of the breakout of the First World War, those provisions could not be implemented, and only after 1918 were new arrangements made: October 29, 1924: Promoted as Archdiocese of Belgrade December 16, 1986: Promoted as Metropolitan Archdiocese of Belgrade
