Velika Plana (Велика Плана,Romanian : Plana Mare) is a town and municipality located in the Podunavlje District of Serbia. In 2002, the population of the town was 16,210, whilst the population of the municipality was 44,470.

Velika Plana is a town on the left bank of Velika Morava. Although the river doesn't directly go through the town, it flows by and is considered to be the town's river. It has three elementary schools: O.Š "Sveti Sava" (О.Š are the Serbian initials for elementary school), О.Š "Мiloš Mitrović" and О.Š "Nadežda Petrović". It also has a general high school, technical high school and business assistant high school.

In the center of the town is a beautiful town park. The town also has few more, smaller parks. The main Serbian highway goes through this town, as well as the Belgrade - Niš - Skopje railway. Those two major traffic roads make this town a crossroad of important roads.

At the outskirts of the town are three important ecclesiatical monuments: the mid-15th century Koporin nunnery where Despot Stefan Lazarević, son of Prince Lazar of the Battle of Kosovo is buried; the early 19th century Pokajnica monastery built as a sign of repentance (Serbian: покајање) by the murderer of Karađorđe, leader of the First Serbian Uprising and the founder of the Karađorđević / Karageogrevitch royal family of Serbia and later Yugoslavia; as well as a small church built by King Alexander Karađorđević of Yugoslavia at the exact place of his ancestor's murder.

The latter two are within 4 km from each other, and easily reachable by public transit. Koporin is more secluded but still within 15 km from the other two.
