Gunja is a village in Croatia.

In the 2011 census, the population was 4,267, with 57.13% declaring themselves Croats, 34.69% as Bosniaks, and 3.32% as Serbs. It is a small village directly across the river from the city of Brčko in Bosnia and Herzegovina. During the war in Bosnia, many Muslim and Croat citizens of Brčko lived as refugees in Gunja. The village has a mosque, one of few in Croatia. The settlement was founded in the 18th century by settlers from Eastern Bosnia.

Gunja was heavily hit by the 2014 Southeast Europe floods, with estimated property damage in excess of €50 million.[1][2]
