Ladushkin ( _ru. Ла́душкин, German: "Ludwigsort", _pl. Ludwinów, _lt. Liudvigsortas) is a small town lying between Kaliningrad and the Polish border, in Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia. Population: 3,800 (2004 est.); 3,796 (2002 Census).

The town was founded as Ludwigsort in 1314 and is situated not far from the shores of the Vistula Lagoon and the ruins of the Teutonic Knights' Balga castle.

After the transfer of northern East Prussia to the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic following World War II, the town was renamed Ladushkin in 1946 after the Red Army soldier Ivan Ladushkin who was killed nearby in the previous year. Ladushkin is administered from Baltiysk as a special military enclave within the Bagrationovsk Region.
