Nowogród is a small town in northeastern Poland located about 13km away from the city of Łomża, in Łomża County, in Podlaskie Voivodeship, with 1,998 inhabitants (2004). It is centered on the area known as Skansen Kurpiowski which is an open-air museum, with several examples of mostly 19th century architecture from the region of Kurpie. The museum is dedicated to local Kurpie culture and is a popular folk tourist attraction. It was established by Adam Chętnik in 1927, and now features over 3000 items.The river Narew flows through the town and has a myriad of views from the hills amongst it. The town's landmark is a World War II tank that stands overlooking the Narew river from atop a hill.While contemporary Nowogrod lies on a hill along the Narew river, the ancient gord was located at the confluence of the Narew and the Pisa. In late Middle Ages, Nowogrod used to be one of the most important towns of the Duchy of Mazovia. It was the seat of a royal castellany, granted town charter in 1427, to lose it in 1869.The history of the gord of Nowogrod dates back to the 9th century, as archaeologists found several objects, such as axes and tools, which date back to that period. Some time probably in the 12th century, the gord was moved on the high bank of the Narew, and at that time it was probably named Nowogrod. By early 14th century, it already was the seat of a castellany; on Nowogrod’s stamp from 1320, a Latin inscription Signum Novogrodensis is visible.Plan your tour of Nowogrod and Poland travel itinerary using our Poland journey site.
