The Gmina of Niedzwiada
Niedzwiada has a population of 6700 and covers an area of 96 sq.km.
It is situated on the Lubartow plain, which is the eastern part of Small
Mazowie and the Great Valleys Region. The gmina is bordered in the west
by the Wieprz river, the south by the Struga river, and in the east by
the Piskornica river. 77% of the gmina is arable farmland and 16% is forested.
75% of the arable land is ploughed, the remaining 25% is mainly meadows.
The majority of the population is concerned with agriculture; with grain,
potatoes, tobacco and soft fruit being the main crops. the meadows are
used mainly for cattle and pigs. The average farm has 4.4 hectares of land.
Until just before Easter 2000, the gmina was bisected by the Lublin-Lukow
railway, which has now been closed due to insufficient traffic.
Niedzwiada was part of, and the seat of government, of the Tarlo region
until 1954. During the first world war, there were battles here between
the Russia and Austria. The cemetery for these battles are located in the
woods between Niedzwiada and Tarlo.
Some of the settlements have changed their names over the centuries,
sometimes the new names were related to the old ones and sometimes new
names were given.
