Łużyce [wuˈʐɨt͡sɛ] is the part of Dziecinów village, Gmina Sobienie-Jeziory. From 1975 to 1998 this place was in Siedlce Voivodeship. It lies approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) north-west of Sobienie-Jeziory, 16 km (10 mi) south of Otwock, and 33 km (21 mi) south-east of Warsaw.

The name of the place (probably) comes from local Mazovian word "łurzyce" which means area located near the river ("urzecze" in Polish) and is not connected to the word Łużyce (which means Lusatia) in Polish. It means that etymologically correct spelling of the name of this part of the village is Łurzyce. The name Łużyce is present in official Polish National Register of Territorial Division (TERYT).
