Miejsce Odrzańskie [ˈmjɛi̯st͡sɛ ɔˈdʐaɲskʲɛ] (German: Mistitz) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Cisek, within Kędzierzyn-Koźle County, Opole Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It lies approximately 10 kilometres (6 mi) south of Cisek, 18 km (11 mi) south of Kędzierzyn-Koźle, and 57 km (35 mi) south of the regional capital Opole.

Before 1945 the area was part of Germany and known as Mistitz. After World War II the city was ceded to the Peoples Republic of Poland.

The village has a population of 328.

Notable people[edit]

Sex asymmetry[edit]

It became famous since it hasn't had single male newborns for almost a decade.[2] Despite that, a variety of scientists said it is just a coincidence, helped by the particular birth rate of the village being lower than 1 birth per year.
