The Greek Church of the Holy Trinity (also: Church of the Holy Trinity) is an Orthodox church in the 1st district of Vienna Inner City at Fleischmarkt 13 in the former "Greek Quarter".
It is the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Austria Exarchate of Hungary and Central Europe of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, while the Church of St. George on Hafnersteig is the representation in the Greek Oriental Church in Austria.
As early as 1782, the Count's Stockhammer's house is said to have been converted into a simple Greek church. The Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity was founded in 1787 as a result of the tolerance patent issued by Emperor Joseph II in 1781. While the parish of St. George represented the subjects of the Ottoman Empire in Vienna, the members of the Holy Trinity were subjects of the Habsburgs and, after 1848, of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1837 the community acquired a plot of land adjacent to the Sankt Marxer Friedhof and set up its own department on it.
