The Eparchy of Buda (Serbian: Будимска епархија or Budimska eparhija) is a diocese or eparchy of the Serbian Orthodox Church, having jurisdiction over the territory of Hungary. The see of the eparchy is in Szentendre (Serbian: Сентандреја or Sentandreja) near Budapest.


The term Buda (Serbian: Будим or Budim) in the name of the eparchy refers to the name of the former city of Buda, which merged with the city of Pest to form the modern city of Budapest in 1873. That change did not affect the eparchy and the original name has been kept to the present day.[1]
