A metropolis is a see or city whose bishop is the metropolitan of a province. Metropolises, historically, have been important cities in their provinces.

In the Eastern Orthodox churches, a metropolis is a type of diocese, along with eparchies, exarchates, and archdioceses.<ref> http://orthodoxwiki.org/Metropolis </ref> A similar system exists in the Roman Catholic Church.
