Czarnolas [t͡ʂarˈnɔlas] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Policzna, within Zwoleń County, Masovian Voivodeship, in east-central Poland.[1] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) north-east of Zwoleń and 100 km (62 mi) south-east of Warsaw.

The village's name roughly translates to "black forest". In 1975-98 it was in Radom Voivodeship.

Czarnolas is famous as the residence of the Polish Renaissance poet, Jan Kochanowski.

The village belonged to the Kochanowski family for a century, then frequently changed owners. In 1830, on the site of the poet's manor house, which had burned down, a Neogothic chapel was erected. In 1961, in the Jabłonowski family's 19th-century manor house, within a picturesque garden, was established the Jan Kochanowski Museum, before which stands a statue of the poet by M. Welter.
