Nje (Њ њ; italics: Њ њ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.

It is a ligature of the Cyrillic letters En Н and Soft Sign Ь. It was invented by Vuk Stefanović Karadžić. It corresponds to the digraph nj in the Serbian Latin and Croatian alphabets.

It is used in Macedonian and Serbian, where it represents a palatal nasal /ɲ/, similar to Spanish ñ in "señor" (cf. Polish ń, Czech and Slovak ň). It is also used in Itelmen.
