Velika Polana (pronounced [ˈʋeːlika ˈpoːlana]; Hungarian: Nagypalina, Prekmurje Slovene: Velka Polana, or Völka Polana, German: Teufelslochn) is a town and a municipality in Slovenia.
It has been officially designated a "stork village" (i.e., a settlement with 10 or more storks’ nests). It was also the home of the Slovene writer Miško Kranjec.
