Seňa (Hungarian: Abaújszina, German: Schena) (1249 Schena, 1251 Scyna, Zyna, 1255 Scynna, 1402 Czena) is a village and municipality in Košice-okolie District in the Košice Region of eastern Slovakia.


In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1249 (Schena) when King Béla IV installed here German free colonists from Košice (hospites de Cassovia). The village, being an important marketplace, passed to Čaňa village in 1255 and in 1402 to local Lord Miklos Perényi as a royal donation. King Ján Jiskra gave the village to Košice.

In 1567 the village was destroyed by Turks. In 1528 Ferdinand I of Habsburg defeated in battle the army condottiere Ján Zapolyai. In 1652 it was burned again by Turks. In the 17th century it passed to the Rozgonyi and Báthory noble families.


Birthplace of Andreas Jaszlinszky.
