The Nový Most (New Bridge; formerly Most SNP - Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising) in Bratislava is a road bridge over the Danube in the capital of Slovakia.

It was built between 1967 and 1972 and projected by A. Tesár, J. Lacko, and I. Slameň. Officially opened on August 26, 1972. It is an asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge with a main span length of 303 metres. Its steel construction hangs on steel ropes, which are mounted on the Petržalka river side at two pillars. The total length of the bridge is 430.8 metres, the width is 21 metres and the weight 7537 tonnes.

A special attraction is a flying saucer-like restaurant, called (since 2005) "Ufo" , on a 84.6 metre pylon of the bridge. One can reach the restaurant using an elevator situated in the left pillar. The restautant offers a good view over Bratislava. In the right pillar there is an emergency staircase with 430 stairs.

The Nový Most has lanes for cars, bikes and walkers.
