Małkinia Górna [mau̯ˈkiɲa ˈɡurna] is a large village in Ostrów Mazowiecka County, Masovian Voivodeship, Poland, with about 6,000 inhabitants (2005). It is the seat of the administrative district called Gmina Małkinia Górna.

Małkinia is a railway junction. There, the main line between Warsaw and Białystok crosses with the secondary-importance connection Ostrołęka - Siedlce. During World War II the Nazi Treblinka extermination camp was located nearby. Victims were often held in locked trains at the Małkinia railway station awaiting transport into the camp.[1]
