Kwiatkowice [kfjatkɔˈvit͡sɛ] (German: Alt Läst) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Prochowice, within Legnica County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It lies approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) east of Prochowice, 18 km (11 mi) east of Legnica, and 48 km (30 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław.
