Spring in Fialta and other stories (Весна в Фиальте и другие рассказы; "Vesna v Fialʹte i drugie rasskazy") is a collection of short stories by the Russian author Vladimir Nabokov. The collection contains 14 short stories written between 1931 and 1940[1]. The collection of short stories were originally planned to be published in 1939 in Paris however, due to the approach of World War II it became an abandoned project[2].

The collection was first published in Russian in 1956 by the Chekhov Publishing House in New York.
