Radzymin [IPA-pl|r|a|'|dz|y|m|i|n] 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 km to mi|25 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 and of the Nobel laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer. [ [http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/literature/laureates/1978/ The Nobel Prize in Literature 1978] , retrieved on October 19 2007.]
