Velence is a town in the county of Fejér, Hungary, on the shore of Lake Velence.

Its name is the same in Hungarian as that of the Italian city of Venice, though they are suffixed differently ("in Velence" is Velencén instead of Velencében when speaking about the Hungarian town. See Hungarian grammar for details).
