Łazienkowski Bridge (Polish: Most Łazienkowski) is a five-span steel bridge, across the Vistula in Warsaw, Poland. It is 423 m long and 28 m wide, holding three lanes for vehicles each way and sidewalks for pedestrians. The name refers to the Łazienki Park and Łazienki Palace, which are located to the south-west of the bridge.
The bridge was opened along with the Łazienkowska Thoroughfare on 22 July 1974, after three years' construction.
Since 1981 until 1998 the bridge was formally named Most Łazienkowski im. gen. Zygmunta Berlinga (English: General Zygmunt Berling Łazienkowski Bridge) in honour of a Polish military commander who collaborated with the Soviet during World War II, but in practice this name was almost never used.
On 14 February 2015, the bridge was damaged by fire, as a result the bridge was closed until October 2015, and was completely rebuilt. The bridge was re-opened on 20 October 2015.
