Sterna (Greek: Στέρνα) is a settlement in the Evros regional unit of Greece. It is located around 9 kilometers west of Nea Vyssa and northwest of Orestiada, on low hills between the rivers Evros and Arda.
Sterna was ruled by the Ottoman Empire until the Balkan Wars of 1913, when it joined Bulgaria. After the Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922) it was ceded to Greece.
