Modlin Fortress is a unique monument of military architecture in Poland . It is located in the central part of the country, in the city of Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki , about 30 kilometers from the capital city Warsaw . Modlin Fortress is an internationally recognized example of defensive architecture.


The history of Modlin Fortress monument dates back to 1806, when Napoleon wanted to expand his influence in eastern Europe . The decision to build the Modlin Fortress was made during Napoleon´s stay in Poznan . The location of the fort was strategically chosen at the confluence of the rivers Vistula and Narew, which was supposed to support the defense capability. First, large military barracks were built, and over the years Modlin Fortress was further developed, e.g. the White Tower overlooking the Narew River was added. Another circle of fortresses was built during the Second World War. Between the wars the Modlin Fortress was used as a training centre. During the Second World War, over 2,000 soldiers died when defending this fortress. Modlin Fortress was liberated by Soviet troops in January 1945 and was handed over to the Polish military authorities.
