Radzymin [raˈd​͡zɨmin] is a town in Poland and is one of the distant suburbs of the city of Warsaw. It is located in the powiat of Wołomin of the Masovian Voivodeship. The town has 7,595 inhabitants (as of 2004), but the surrounding commune is heavily populated and has an additional 11,000 inhabitants.

Radzymin was located by Bolesław IV of Warsaw in 1440. It was granted with a town charter in 1475. Since then, the town shared the fate of the nearby city of Warsaw, located only 25 kilometers (16 mi) away.

The town is notable for two major battles of Radzymin that took place there in 20th century.

It is the birthplace of the linguist Jan Baudouin de Courtenay. Nobel laureate in Literature Isaac Bashevis Singer was born in Leoncin, but lived in Radzymin during childhood (though some sources claims Radzymin as his birthplace)[1]
