Krasiński (plural: Krasińscy) is the surname of a Polish noble-aristocratic family. Because Polish adjectives have different forms for the genders, Krasińska is the form for a female family member.

The Krasiński family had a number of soldiers, politicians (including voivodes of Poland and other members of the senate of Poland) and bishops. The family's most famous member is the 19th-century poet Zygmunt Krasiński.

The name of the family comes from the Krasne village in Masovia.

The family dates to the 14th century; its members have been active in Masovia, Lithuania and Halychyna.
