Humenné

Population: 35,000

Region: Prešovský

Country: Slovakia

Humenné is a town located in the Southeast of the Slovakian region of Prešovský.

The economy of Humenné is based on farming, tourism, processing (food, chemicals), textile manufacturing, and construction.

People have lived in and around what is now Humenné for thousands of years, but the settlement of the town didn't happen until the early fourteenth century. The history of the town was influenced by a lineage called the Drugeth, who used Humenné as the seat of their dominion within the Hungarian Empire until the end of their line in 1684. In the nineteenth century, the Andrássy family made their influence on the town, mainly by constructing new buildings in the town. Humenné was a non-economically-important town, mostly being an administrative centre. In 1956, a textile plant was built in the town, which caused the population to grow and caused the town to actually become economically important in the region.

Not much can be found out about the meaning of the town's name.
