Krushari (Bulgarian: Крушари, pronounced [kruˈʃari]) is a village in northeastern Bulgaria, part of Dobrich Province. It is the administrative centre of Krushari Municipality, which lies in the northwestern part of the province. Krushari is located 32 kilometres from the provincial capital of Dobrich, 85 kilometres from Varna and around 70 kilometres from Balchik and Silistra.
The old name of the village was Armutlii (also Armutli, Armutlu, Armutlia), which has an Ottoman Turkish etymology and shares the same meaning as the current Bulgarian name: "pear growers" or "pear vendors". The modern name was introduced in 1942, after Southern Dobruja was returned to Bulgaria following a Romanian rule between the 1913 Treaty of Bucharest and the 1940 Treaty of Craiova.
