Góra Świętej Anny (Polish pronunciation: [ˈɡura ˈɕfʲɛntɛj ˈannɨ]; German: Sankt Annaberg; Silesian: Anaberg/Świynto Anna; both names mean Saint Anne Mountain) is a village in the Opole Voivodeship, Strzelce County, and Gmina Leśnica of Poland.[1]

The village is located on the hill from which its name derives, and a popular sanctuary, with the miraculous statue of Saint Anne and the impressive calvary, is located on its top.

The settlement lies within the protected area called Góra Świętej Anny Landscape Park. This is also one of the official Polish Historical Monuments (Pomnik historii).

Following World War One and the re-emergence of the sovereign Poland, while still part of Weimar Republic, the hill was the site of the Battle of Annaberg in 1921 during the Silesian Uprisings.
