Vranić (Serbian Cyrillic: Вранић) is a suburban settlement of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in the municipality of Barajevo. Vranić is the westernmost settlement in the municipality, located 2 km east of the Ibarska magistrala, but as the settlement grew, it reached the highway. Vranić was part of the municipality of Umka which was abolished in 1960 and divided between the municipalities of Čukarica and Barajevo (Vranić and Meljak).

It is a rural settlement and, thanks to the proximity of the highway, in the last three decades Vranić has developed into the second most populous settlement in the municipality after the municipal seat of Barajevo. Population of Vranić:
