The Old Bridge (Slovene: Stari most), also named the State Bridge (Državni most), the Main Bridge (Glavni most) and the Drava Bridge (Dravski most), is a bridge crossing the Drava River in Maribor, northeastern Slovenia. It links Carinthia Street (Koroška cesta) and Pobrežje Street (Pobreška cesta) and is 270 metres (890 ft) long.[1] Its central part, spanning across the Drava, is 166 m (545 ft) long and has three steel arches.[1]

The bridge was completed in 1913[2][3] and opened to traffic on 23 August of that year.[1] During World War II, it was damaged and later partially rebuilt.[1] The last renovations took place in 1990 and 1998.[1]
