The Archidiocese of Veszprém is one of the oldest dioceses of the country. At the same time, Veszprém is the youngest archiepiscopal seat, since it was only promoted to a metropolitan seat by blessed pope John Paul II. in his apostolic constitution Hungarorum Gens on 30 May, 1993.
The same apostolic constitution defined the territory of the modern diocese, which consists of Veszprém county, about a quarter of Zala county and some settlements of Győr-Moson-Sopron county and Komárom-Esztergom county. The diocese has 460 thousand inhabitants, some 300 thousand of them are Catholic. The diocese consists of four archdeaconries, seven deaneries and 180 parishes which are served by over one hundred pastors.
The archbishop of the diocese is dr. György Udvardy (from 2019), the vicar-general is Dr. István Takáts, the vicar-economist is János Szabó, the office director is Krisztián Tornavölgyi.
The patron of the Archdiocese is St. Anne, the co-patron is Blessed Queen Gisela.
