Loštice (Czech pronunciation: ) is a town in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic. It has around 3,100 inhabitants.

Village Žádlovice is an administrative part of Loštice.

Loštice's well known product is traditional cheese, called tvarůžek, or syreček.

In 1854 Fanny Neuda wrote the first Jewish prayer book known to have been written by a woman for women, called Hours of Devotion; it was translated into English and published in the United States 12 years later.[1] In 2015 a plaque honoring her was unveiled in Loštice, where she lived while her husband was a rabbi there.[1]
