Mirosławiec [mʲirɔˈswavʲɛt͡s] (German: Märkisch Friedland; Kashubian: Frédlądk) is a town in Wałcz County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland, with 4,837 inhabitants (2007).

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.

The 12th Air Base of the Polish Air Force is located 5 kilometres (3 miles) north of the town.
