['radɔm]) is a city in central Poland with 228,695 inhabitants (2003). It is situated in the Masovian Voivodship (since 1999), previously capital of Radom Voivodship (1975-1998), 100 km south of Poland's capital, Warsaw.

It is home to the annual Radom Air Show - the greatest and most attended air show in Poland organized around September each year. "Radom" is also the popular unofficial name for a semiautomatic 9mm Parabellum pistol of Polish design (the Model 35/ViS-35) designed by Piotr Wilniewczyc and Jan Skrzypinski (hence the designation "ViS") which had been in production from 1935-45 at the national arsenal located in the city.
