Shipka Pass (Bulgarian: Шипченски проход, Shipchenski prohod) is a scenic mountain pass through Stara Planina in Bulgaria. It is crossed by a road, which runs from Ruse on the Danube River to Stara Zagora and then on to Edirne in Turkey. The maximum altitude of the pass is 1,150 m (3,820 ft).

During the Russo-Turkish War, Shipka Pass was the scene of a series of conflicts collectively named the Battle of Shipka Pass. There is also a Shipka Pass in the east end of Glasgow, Scotland.
