Rossocha [rɔsˈsɔxa] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Rawa Mazowiecka, within Rawa County, Łódź Voivodeship, in central Poland.[1] It lies approximately 54 km (34 mi) east of the regional capital Łódź.

Before World War II, it was part of a szlachta (Polish nobility) estate, belonging to Jan Czarnowski. The Czarnkowski's family palace was built shortly after World War I by Juliusz Nagórski;[2] it was a small but luxurious holiday palace.

After the war, part of the estate was turned into a biological and zoological research station.[3]
