Lushnjë ( _sq. Lushnjë (spelling LushñƏ) or Lushnja. Lushnjë dialect: Lushnje or Lushnja) is a city of Central-West Albania located at 40.95°N, 19.71°E. It is the center of the District of Lushnjë in the County of Fier and has a population of about 280,000 (2003 est.). The town was founded in late medieval time by a Turkish widow called Salushe. She built a restoring point in the way passing from Durrës to Berat. This way the town was born. As of the end of the year 2000, old men still call the city Salushe.

In January 1920, Lushnjë was a provisional capital of Albania and the place of the Congress of Lushnjë. Chieftains of Albania assembled in town and they declared Tirana first a provisional and then the definitive capital of Albania.

The Lushnjë district is known as a main provider of agricultural products to the rest of the country. It is one of very few field districts of mountainous Albania. The first cooperative in Albania was created in Krutja, a village of Lushnja. All the people of Krutja participated in this event and they are proud for this.

Lushnja is the birthplace of these famous people:
* Vaçe Zela
* Margarita Xhepa
* Vath Korreshi
* Hysni Zela
* Hasan Dervishi
* Jani Nushi
* Alban Skënderaj
