Description

Sycyna Północna [sɨˈt͡sɨna puu̯ˈnɔt͡sna] is a village in Poland's present-day Mazowsze Province (Zwoleń County). In 1975–98, it was part of Radom Province. It lies approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) south-east of Zwoleń and 109 km (68 mi) south-east of Warsaw. The first recorded mention of Sycyna (as "Szyczyny") comes from 1191. Its first known owner was Mikołaj (Nicholas) de Szycina (1418). In 1470 the village was described by the chronicler, Jan Długosz. From 1525 Sycyna belonged to the Kochanowski family, having been purchased by the szlachcic (nobleman) Piotr Kochanowski. Five years later, in 1530, at Sycyna the poet Jan Kochanowski was born. Sycyna was divided into Sycyna Północna ("North") and Sycyna Południowa ("South") in the 21st century.
