Vračarski Plato or Vračar plateau is a plateau in Vračar, Belgrade with an absolute height of 134 meters above sea level.

The dominant position in Belgrade's cityscape made the plateau a natural location for the first meteorological observatory in Serbia, Belgrade Meteorological Station, built in 1891.

Nowadays, this tourist attraction houses the Temple of Saint Sava and Karađorđev park with the monument of Karađorđe Petrović, visible from almost all approaches to the city.[citation needed]
