Nakło nad Notecią is a town located in the Southern-Eastern area of the historic region of Krajna, a land located on the border between the regions of Pomerania and Greater Poland.
It used to be a mediaeval fortified town of strategic significance, which was granted its borough rights by King Władysław I Łokietek, in 1299. Thanks to its favourable location by the Noteć River, the town became an important centre for trade and craft. It also had its own district court and land court. In 1772, following the first Partition of Poland, the town was incorporated in the territory under Prussian rule. In the second half of the 19th Century, Nakło nad Notecią became an important transport junction, owning it mainly to its fast-developing river port and the rail connection with Piła and Bydgoszcz established in 1851. The latter was part of an main railway line that connected Berlin to Königsberg, which was strategically important to Prussia. In 1918, the town was part of the Greater Poland uprising, and in effect was incorporated back to the territory of Poland, in January 1920.
Among the most significant historic monuments preserved in the town, you can find granaries dating back to the 18thand 19th Centuries, a neo-Gothic post-evangelical Church of St. Stanislaus, and a neoclassical Saint Lawrence Church.
In the town, you will also find Nakielski Ośrodek Kultury (Culture Centre). Nakło nad Notecią is also a birthplace for Jan Jakub Należyty, an entertainer, satirist, singer, songster and interpreter of French songs.
