Lužec nad Cidlinou is a village in the Hradec Králové District of the Czech Republic. It is known in the district for its high level of unemployment. Just like most Czech villages Lužec nad Cidlinou is a popular weekend accommodation for people from cities with lack of touch with nature. The village has however lost a portion of its earlier popularity due to a runaway crime level and flawed law enforcement.

The official name of the village is Lužec nad Cidlinou, but it is mostly just simply referred to as Lužec. There is another "Lužec" in the Mělník District named Lužec nad Vltavou but it rarely causes any confusion.

There is an army radar type RAT 31-DL located between the villages of Lužec, Nepolisy and Lišice. It is a part of NATO's aerial defense system NATINADS.
