The Rača Bridge (Serbian: Мост у Рачи) is an international bridge over the Sava river, from Sremska Rača in Serbia to Bosanska Rača in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Bridge of Maria of Yugoslavia (Мост краљице Марије) was opened in 28 June 1934. The bridge was built by mainly Italian workers.[1]

On September 6, 2010, the Serbian government and Milorad Dodik opened the new Bridge of Europe (Мост Европа), Boris Tadić said he hoped the bridge would further bring closer the peoples of both sides of the Sava river, contributing economically Serbia and the Republika Srpska entity.[2]
