Andrzejówka [andʐɛˈjufka] (Ukrainian: Андріївка, Andriyivka) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Muszyna, within Nowy Sącz County, Lesser Poland Voivodeship, in southern Poland, close to the border with Slovakia.[1] It lies approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) west of Muszyna, 32 km (20 mi) south of Nowy Sącz, and 102 km (63 mi) south-east of the regional capital Kraków.

The village existed already in the 13th century, but was formally established under German law in 1352.[2] In the second half of 16th century it was resettled by Vlachs, who would later become Lemkos.[2]
