Dražanj (Serbian Cyrillic: Дражањ) is a suburban settlement of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in the municipality of Grocka.

Dražanj is located in the southern part of the municipality, in the northern Šumadija region, between the macro-region of Podunavlje and the northeastern slopes of Kosmaj mountain. It is situated on the Ralja river, on both the rail and highway Belgrade-Niš (37 km southeast of Belgrade).
