Kozakowice (German: Kosakowitz) is a village in Gmina Goleszów, Cieszyn County, Silesian Voivodeship, southern Poland, close to the border with the Czech Republic. It has a population of about 600. It lies in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia.

The village was first mentioned in a Latin document of Diocese of Wrocław called Liber fundationis episcopatus Vratislaviensis from around 1305 as Goschegowitz.[1] It belonged then to the Duchy of Teschen, formed in 1290.

Currently they form two sołectwos: Kozakowice Dolne and Kozakowice Górne.

Andrzej Cinciała, Polish lawyer and activist was born here.
