Radomyśl nad Sanem [raˈdɔmɨɕl ˌnat ˈsanɛm] is a village in Stalowa Wola County, Subcarpathian Voivodeship, in south-eastern Poland. It is the seat of the gmina (administrative district) called Gmina Radomyśl nad Sanem.[1] It lies on the San river in Lesser Poland, approximately 14 kilometres (9 mi) north-west of Stalowa Wola and 73 km (45 mi) north of the regional capital Rzeszów. The village has a population of 893. Radomyśl was a town from 1558 to 1935.

In the early days of Polish statehood, the area of Radomyśl belonged to the Duchy of Sandomierz, which later became Sandomierz Voivodeship. In 1474, Lublin Voivodeship was created out of its eastern part, and Radomyśl belonged to this province until 1772 (see Partitions of Poland), when it was annexed by Austria, together with whole Galicia. Radomyśl nad Sanem itself was founded as a private village in 1556, by a local nobleman Jakub Sienienski. Two years later, King Zygmunt August granted it a town charter (Magdeburg rights), and in 1584, King Stefan Batory gave permission for an annual fair and weekly markets, organized on each Monday. In the Second Polish Republic, Radomyśl nad Sanem belonged to Lwow Voivodeship, and in 1935 it lost its town charter, after almost 400 years.
