Krzywcza is in southeastern Poland on the San River just ten miles west of Przemyśl on route 884, an east-west road from Przemyśl to Domaradz that also passes through Dubiecko. It is the seat of the Gmina Krzywcza, a rural administrative district in Przemyśl County (Powiat Przemyski), Subcarpathian Province (Podkarpackie Voivodeship). Before World War I Krzywcza was in western Galicia in the Austrian Empire. Between World War I and World War II, it was in Poland in the Przemyśl District in the province of Lwów.
