Zheravna Glacier (Lednik Zheravna \'led-nik 'zhe-rav-na\) is a glacier on Greenwich Island, Antarctica situated east of Wulfila Glacier and west of Targovishte Glacier. It is bounded by Razgrad Peak to the west, Ilinden Peak and Momchil Peak to the north, and Viskyar Ridge to the east, extending 2 km in the east-west direction and 1.8 km in the north-south direction, and draining southwards into McFarlane Strait between Ephraim Bluff and Sartorius Point.
