Szczurkowo [ʂt͡ʂurˈkɔvɔ] (German: Schönbruch) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Sępopol, within Bartoszyce County, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, in northern Poland, at the border of Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia.[1] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) north-west of Sępopol, 14 km (9 mi) north-east of Bartoszyce, and 69 km (43 mi) north-east of the regional capital Olsztyn.
