Nowa Słupia is a village in Kielce County, Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, in south-central Poland. It is the seat of the gmina (administrative district) called Gmina Nowa Słupia. It lies in Lesser Poland, approximately 34km east of the regional capital Kielce. The village has an approximate population of 1,600.Nowa Słupia, which in the past was known as Słup and Słupia Nowa, has a long and rich history, and used to be a town from 1351 to 1869. The village is located in the Swietokrzyskie Mountains, at the foothills of Lysa Gora, the second highest peak of the mountains. Nowa Słupia borders Swietokrzyski National Park. The village, which is a junction of three regional roads (751th, 753rd and 756th), is a starting point of several tourist trails.In the 13th and 14th centuries, Nowa Słupia belonged to the Święty Krzyż Benedictine Abbey, and at that time the village was called Słup. In 1351, due to efforts of Benedictine abbots, King Kazimierz Wielki granted town charter to Slup. The new town’s name was changed into Słupia Nowa, to distinguish it from the nearby village of Słupia, which now is called Stara Słupia. Słupia Nowa developed as a center of services for pilgrims, who headed to Swiety Krzyz. Among the pilgrims, was King Wladyslaw Jagiello. In 1405, Słupia received a privilege for weekly fairs. The town prospered in the period known as Polish Golden Age, and in 1578 it had 21 workshops with a mill.
