Drohiczyn is a town in Siemiatycze County, Podlaskie Voivodeship, Poland. The town has a population of 2,110 and is situated on the bank of the Bug River. Drohiczyn has a long and rich history, as in the past it was one of the most important cities of the region of Podlasie. Currently, it is the seat of Roman Catholic Diocese of Drohiczyn.HistoryA Neolithic settlement, La Tène culture crematoria, and ancient graves have been uncovered in what now is Drohiczyn.Drohiczyn, regarded as one of the oldest towns of the region of Podlasie, was in ancient times located among dense forests. In early Middle Ages, this part of Poland was inhabited by the warring tribe of Yotvingians. It is not known who founded the gord of Drohiczyn: probably it was a defensive settlement of the Yotvingians, mentioned in Rus chronicles in 1061. In 1142, Grand Duke Vsevolod II of Kiev divided his realm between his family, granting Drohiczyn and Brest to his younger brother Igor. Some time in late 12th century, Drohiczyn fell under the Polish rule. On March 8, 1237, Duke Konrad I of Masovia handed Drohiczyn, together with the area between the Bug and the Narew, to the Order of Dobrzyn. Drohiczyn is in Podlaskie Province.
