Jeziorki Małe [jɛˈʑɔrki ˈmawɛ] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Gołdap, within Gołdap County, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, in northern Poland, close to the border with the Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia.[1] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) south-west of Gołdap and 123 km (76 mi) north-east of the regional capital Olsztyn.

Before 1945 the village was part of Germany (East Prussia) and known as Klein Jesziorken. 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 or Ukrainians forced to settle in the area through Operation Vistula in 1947.

The village has a population of 30.
