The Golden Spin of Zagreb (Croatian: Zlatna pirueta Zagreba) is an annual senior-level figure skating competition, held yearly in Zagreb, Croatia. It became part of the ISU Challenger Series in the 2014–15 season. Medals are awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing, although, in some years, not every discipline is included. The equivalent for junior-level (and below) skaters is the Golden Bear of Zagreb.

The Golden Spin of Zagreb was first held in December 1967.[1] In 2001, it served as the qualifying competition for the 2002 Winter Olympics.[2]
