Creating a Responsive Navigation Bar

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a responsive navigation bar using HTML and CSS. A responsive navigation bar is important for creating a user-friendly experience on mobile devices.

HTML Markup

First, let’s create the HTML markup for our navigation bar. We will use a container div to hold our navigation items, and a ul element to create the list of navigation links:

<div id="navbar">
    <li><a href="#home">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#services">Services</a></li>
    <li><a href="#about">About</a></li>
    <li><a href="#contact">Contact</a></li>

CSS Styles

Next, we will add some CSS styles to make our navigation bar look nice and to make it responsive. We will use media queries to change the layout of the navigation bar on smaller screens:

#navbar {
  width: 100%;
  background-color: #333;
  overflow: hidden;
#navbar ul {
  list-style-type: none;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
#navbar li {
  float: left;
#navbar li a {
  display: block;
  color: white;
  text-align: center;
  padding: 14px 16px;
  text-decoration: none;
@media screen and (max-width: 600px) {
  #navbar li {
    float: none;

Now, our navigation bar should be fully responsive and will adjust to the size of the screen. You can play around with the styles and add more features to your navigation bar.
