The Gdański Bridge (Polish: Most Gdański) is a six-span steel truss bridge 406.5 m long and 17 m wide, across the Vistula in Warsaw, Poland.

It opened on 31 July, 1959, after three years of construction. It has two elevations. The upper part serves road transport with four road lanes and a sidewalk. The lower part serves tram traffic with two tracks, and also features a sidewalk and a cycling lane.

The bridge was built upon the foundations of the Citadel Rail Bridge which had been demolished during World War II.

In 1997-1998 the bridge underwent the reconstruction. It was painted green, and the lower part had been supplied with coloured bulbs for illumination at night.
