Olimpijka was an informal name for the remnants of an uncompleted motorway that was under construction in the 1970s in Poland. It should have crossed the country from east to west and as part of the route between Berlin and Moscow. One section of the planned road was completed in the 1980s, but on another section west of Warsaw the construction was abandoned due to the economic crisis which gripped Poland in the late 1970s, leaving curious ruins of bridges and viaducts (examples: 52°07′09″N 20°30′27″E / 52.11930°N 20.507441°E / 52.11930; 20.507441,52°04′24″N 20°18′27″E / 52.073321°N 20.30740°E / 52.073321; 20.30740) in the countryside that became a minor tourist attraction.

Construction of the A2 motorway resumed along exactly the same route in 2010. All the remnants of Olimpijka were destroyed during construction.
