Serannian is a fictional city in H. P. Lovecraft's Dream Cycle and appears in such stories as "Celephaïs" and The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath.

It is a sky-kingdom in Earth's Dreamlands and lies just off the coast of Ooth-Nargai near Celephaïs. Serannian is a "pink marble city of the clouds, which is built on that ethereal coast where the west wind flows into the sky" ("Celephaïs", Lovecraft). Its harbor is easily reached, as ships may sail into the clouds where the sky meets the Cerenerian Sea.

Like Celephaïs, Serannian is ruled by King Kuranes, who dwells there for half the year.
