Adventure
Sejny is a town in north-eastern Poland, in Podlaskie Voivodeship, close to the border with Lithuania and Belarus. It is located in the eastern part of the Suwałki Lake Area, on the Marycha ("Seina" in Lithuanian from which the town bears its name) river, being a tributary of Czarna Hańcza. As of 1999 it had almost 6,500 permanent inhabitants, with many more inhabiting the area in the tourist season, and is the capital of Sejny County.HistoryEarly historyIn the early Middle Ages the area comprising modern Sejny was inhabited by the Yotvingians, one of the Baltic tribes that had arrived in the area in the first millennium. After the internal struggles of the 13th century, the area was subject to expansion from both Masovia and Lithuania. As a result of the incursions of the Teutonic Order, the area was almost entirely depopulated and only small remnants of the Yotvingian settlements remain presently. In the 14th century the area was the scene of constant struggles between the Lithuanians and the Teutons and indeed the first written mention of the area where the town now lies dates back to 1385 and mentions an armed raid of the German knights from Merkinė to Giżycko.
