The Lužnice (Czech pronunciation: [ˈluʒɲɪtsɛ]; German: Lainsitz) is a river in the Czech Republic (204 km) starting in Austria (4 km). It flows into the Vltava river in Týn nad Vltavou (approximately 50 km north of České Budějovice). The river drains 4,226 square kilometers.

The river was first mentioned in sources in the year 1179. The name was derived from an old Czech word for water flowing through meadows.

Several places on the river are popular destinations for recreation and canoeing.
