Korzkiew [ˈkɔʂkʲɛf] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Zielonki, within Kraków County, Lesser Poland Voivodeship, in southern Poland. It lies approximately 13 km (8 mi) north of the regional capital Kraków.[1]

The village has a population of 170. The nearby castle was part of the Szlak Orlich Gniazd "trail of eagles nests", one of a chain of 14th century (reign of King Casimir) medieval castles that protected the north- western border of royal Krakow that went all the way to Czestochowa. The castle, Zamek Korzkiew, is being restored and currently[when?] houses a boutique hotel and a conference center-banquet hall.[citation needed]
