Where is Nowy Dwor

My Father was born in Nowy Dwor which I understand is nearby Warsaw. I need more info as to how far and what direction of Warswar it is. I am thinking of visiting the Town in the future. Please help.

Elka,
Nowy Dwor is about 160 miles northeast of Warsaw. It's only about 15 miles and west southwest of the border of Belorus and the Belorussan town of Hrodna.

Elka,
You better have better information on Nowy Dwor that what you've submitted. There are about 25 different Nowy Dwor in Poland stretching north form Krakow up to Gandsk and west from Warsaw. Nowy Dwor must be like Smith in English. See if you can get more information.
Good luck.

Elka,
Jim is quite correct in saying that there are a number of towns in Poland (Czech Republic, as well) with names commencing with "Nowy", such as Nowy Gaj and Nowy Kaweczyn. There is, however, only one Nowy Dwor. The closest similar names are Nowy Dwor Gdansk and Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki.

I think Wes Fowler is correct. By the way, Nowy Dwor is pronounced NO-vee D'vor, in which you say the "d" of Dwor and the "v" sound of the "w" as one syllable, as best you can. In the correct pronunciation, the "d" is almost a quick release of air between the tip of the tongue and the roof of the mouth, followed in the same breath by the "vor" part, which is pronounced clearly. It means "new court" or "new courtyard" or in more general terms, a new section or area.

These are just some of the Nowy Dwor towns that came up in my search-
Nowy Dwor-Dolnoslasdie, Poland
" " -Lubelskie, Poland

" " -Warminsko-Mazurskie, Poland
" " -Wielkopolskie, Poand
" " -Dolnosloskie, Poland

and many to many to list here.
There are also two railway stations listed:
Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Station
Nowy Dwor Wroclaw Station
These Nowy Dwor's are spread over a large area of Poland.

Elka,
I have a map showing Nowy Dwor about 45 miles southwest of Warsaw toward Lodze off of route 8 near Babsk and Raducz.

I think Jim is correct when he says there are more than one Nowy Dwor in Poland. There is a Nowy Dwor south of Lublin on the way to Bilgoraj where my mother was born.
