Skandawa [skanˈdava] (German: Skandau) is a village in northern Poland, lying close to the border with the Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia. Located in the administrative district of Gmina Barciany, Kętrzyn County, and the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship,[1]

It lies 9 kilometres (6 mi) north-west of Barciany, 23 km (14 mi) north-north-west of Kętrzyn, and 75 km (47 mi) north-east of the regional capital, Olsztyn.

The 390-km-long Line 353 of Polish State Railways (PKP) connects Poznań to Skandawa and the Russian border (8 km north-east of Skandawa and 3 km south-west of Zheleznodorozhny) via Olsztyn and Korsze. Since 2000 the final stretch from Korsze to the border has been a freight-only branch, and the railway station at Korsze (15 km to the south-west) is today Skandawa's nearest passenger facility.
