The village has a population of 970. It gave its name to the nearby Zegrze Reservoir, a man-made lake constructed in 1963 with a hydroelectric complex producing 20 Megawatts of energy, a popular place of recreation for the residents of Warsaw.[2]

Zegrze is the location of a historic palace built in 1847 by the noble Krasiński family, given as a dowry of Jadwiga Krasińska in 1862, to her new husband Prince Maciej Radziwiłł. The palace, surrounded by a park, serves as a convention centre and a small hotel.[3]
