Starý most Panorama, Slovakia

Starý most (English: Old Bridge) is a bridge over the river Danube in Bratislava, Slovakia. The 460-meter-long (1,510 ft) bridge included a wooden pathway for pedestrians, a two-lane road and railway track, connecting the historic old city of Bratislava with the newer region Petržalka. The bridge was closed for cars in 2009 and for buses on 14 May 2010. On 2 December 2013 it was also closed for pedestrian and bicycle traffic because deconstruction of the bridge began the last week of November. At the time of its closure it was the oldest still-standing bridge in Bratislava.

As of December 2015, the bridge was replaced by a new one for pedestrians, cyclists and trams, as part of new tram track to Petržalka.

At various times in the past, the bridge was called Most Červenej armády (i.e. Red Army Bridge), Štefánikov most, Ferenc József híd and Franz Josef Brücke.
