Social Democracy of the Republic of Poland (SdRP) (Polish: Socjaldemokracja Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej, SdRP) was a social-democratic political party in Poland created in 1990, shortly after the Revolutions of 1989. The party was the main of the two successor parties to the Polish United Workers Party (PZPR).

Among the creators and leading figures of SdRP were the former Polish president Aleksander Kwaśniewski, former speaker of the Sejm Józef Oleksy and former Prime Minister Leszek Miller.

On April 15, 1999, the SdRP was folded into the Democratic Left Alliance.
