Budki [ˈbutki] (German: Bottke)[1] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Główczyce, within Słupsk County, Pomeranian Voivodeship, in northern Poland.[2] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) east of Główczyce, 40 km (25 mi) north-east of Słupsk, and 77 km (48 mi) north-west of the regional capital Gdańsk.

Before 1945 the village was part of Germany and known as Bottke. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Most Germans fled or were expelled and replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.
