==History==
In 1871, the Russian Orthodox Church in Turkestan was organized as a [[diocese ]] with its seat in Verne (now called Almaty). Forty-five years later a separate vicariate was created for the Orthodox Church in Kazakhstan with its seat in Verne, whilst in June 1945 the Diocese of Alma-Ata (Almaty) and Kazakhstan was established. As the Soviet Union collapsed this diocese was reorganized into three dioceses, with the Eparchy of Uralsk and Guryevskiy being established by the Holy Synod on [[January 30 January ]], 1991.
==Eparchy Todaytoday==The Eparchy today includes 20 [[parish]]es and 1 one monastery. Its seat is located at the [[Cathedral]] of St. Michael the Archangel in Uralsk.
