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, while Velencében refers to the Italian city (Magyar Angol Nagyszótár, Akadémiai Kiadó). See Hungarian grammar for details).
