Kula (Bulgarian: Кула, "tower") is a town in northwestern Bulgaria. It is the administrative centre of Kula municipality, part of Vidin Province. Located just east of the Serbian-Bulgarian border, it is the third largest town in the province after Vidin and Belogradchik. Kula lies 30 kilometres west of Vidin and 13 kilometres east of the border checkpoint at Vrashka Chuka.

Kula is the location of the Late Roman fortress of Castra Martis, the ruins of which can still be seen today. The town has a museum exhibiting various tools and everyday items found in the fortress, as well as a miniature model of the Roman town. The most important local industry is the rubber and plastic processing factory.
