Jarun Bridge (Croatian: Jarunski most) is a planned bridge that will cross the Sava River in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. The bridge will be located in the western part of the city, Trešnjevka near Lake Jarun.

The city of Zagreb organized a tender for the design of the Jarun Bridge in 2006,[1] and accepted the project in 2007.[2] The construction, originally estimated to cost around €40 million, did not start due to a lack of funds. As of 2013 the city is considering a pedestrian-and-cycle design as a cheaper alternative.[2]
