Platerówka [platɛˈrufka] (German: Ober Linda) is a village in Lubań County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It is the seat of the administrative district (gmina) called Gmina Platerówka. It lies approximately 10 kilometres (6 mi) south-west of Lubań, and 130 kilometres (81 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław.

Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. Following World War II the native German populace was expelled and replaced by Poles.

The village has a population of 580.

The name Platerówka comes from the name of the Polish Independent Women’s Battalion, Emilia Plater (of the Polish I Corps in the Soviet Union), whose soldiers inhabited the village.
