    Die Festung Modlin (russ. Новогеоргиевская крепость, Nowogeorgiewsk, poln. Twierdza Modlin) ist eine bedeutende Festung am Zusammenfluss von Weichsel und Bug etwa 50 km nordwestlich von Warschau. Modlin und die Festung sind heute Teil von Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki. Im Jahr 1656 wurde die Bugskansen als Schanze unter König Karl X. Gustav angelegt. Napoleon I. erweiterte 1807 die Wälle und begann den Bau der eigentlichen Festung.
    Modlin Fortress (Polish Twierdza Modlin) is one of the biggest 19th century fortresses in Poland. It is located the town of Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki in district Modlin on the Narew river, some 50 kilometres north of Warsaw. It was renamed Novogeorgievsk (Новогеоргиевская крепость) after it was captured by the Russians in 1813. Strategic importance of the area limited by the Vistula, Bug, Wkra and Narew was known to various armies throughout the ages. However, it was not until 1656 that a permanent fortified position was built there by the Swedish armies during The Deluge. The so-called Bugskansen was a star-shaped fortified military camp, located probably close to the confluence of the Narew and the Vistula, at the so-called Swedish Island. The camp was also guarding a wooden bridge over the Vistula prior to the battle of Zakroczym and served as the main supply depot of the Swedish army during the battle of Warsaw of July 1656. After the Swedish defeat the fort was demolished in 1660 and the area remained unfortified for roughly 150 years.
