Buk [buk] (German Böck) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Dobra, within Police County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-western Poland, close to the German border.[1] It lies approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) north-west of Dobra, 15 km (9 mi) west of Police, and 18 km (11 mi) north-west of the regional capital Szczecin.

Before 1945 the area was part of Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles. For the history of the region, see History of Pomerania.
