Zakrzów [ˈzakʂuf] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Środa Śląska, within Środa Śląska County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It lies approximately 11 kilometres (7 mi) north of Środa Śląska and 33 km (21 mi) north-west of the regional capital Wrocław.

Prior to 1945 the village was in Germany and known as Seedorf. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Most Germans fled or were expelled and replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.
