Rzędziny [ʐɛnˈd͡ʑinɨ] (formerly German Nassenheide, the home of Elizabeth von Arnim, renowned author born in Sydney and brought up in England, which was wittily encapsulated in her first and most famous, semi-autobiographical, novel Elizabeth and Her German Garden (1898)[1]) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Dobra, within Police County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-western Poland, close to the German border.[2] It lies approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) north-west of Dobra, 16 km (10 mi) west of Police, and 21 km (13 mi) north-west of the regional capital Szczecin.

Before 1945 the area was part of Germany. For the history of the region, see History of Pomerania.
