Szlichtyngowa [ʂlixtɨŋˈɡɔva] (German: Schlichtingsheim) is a town in Poland, in the Wschowa County of the Lubuskie Voivodship, near the Oder River.

It was founded in 1644, about one mile behind the border between Silesia and Greater Poland by the junker Johann Georg von Schlichting (Polish: Jan Jerzy Szlichting), who obtained a royal charter from the King Władysław IV Vasa of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth for the new settlement near his residence in the village of Górczyna.

The population as of 2004 was 1,348.
