Vladivoj (c. 981 – January 1003) was duke of Bohemia from 1002 to his death.

The origins of the Czech duke Vladivoj are unclear. He was probably a Přemyslid, possibly a second son of Doubravka of Bohemia, or a distant relative. He began to reign in 1002, when the former Czech duke Boleslav III unwillingly ended his own reign. It is said that Vladivoj was an alcoholic, and alcohol was a possible contributor to his death.
