Popricani is a commune in Iași County, Romania, part of the Iași metropolitan area. It is composed of nine villages: Cârlig, Cotu Morii, Cuza Vodă, Moimești, Popricani, Rediu Mitropoliei, Țipilești, Vânători and Vulturi.
In November 2010, a mass grave dating from 1941 was discovered in the nearby forest of Vulturi. It is believed to contain the remains of up to a hundred Jewish men, women and children murdered by Romanian authorities contemporaneously with the nearby Iași pogrom. It is the first such grave found in Romania since the 1945 discovery of 311 bodies at Stânca-Roznovanu, also in the vicinity of Iași.
An official report concluded that the grave contained 36 victims, and that those responsible for the killing had already been sentenced in 1948.
