The river Narew (Belarusian:Нараў, Lithuanian:Naura), in western Belarusmarker and north-eastern Polandmarker, is a tributary of the Vistula river. The portion of the river between Zegrze Lake, where it is joined by the Bug, and the Vistula is sometimes called Narwio-Bug, Narwo-Bug or Bugo-Narew. The Narew is Europe's only braided river, the term relating to the twisted channels resembling braided hair.

Etymology

The name of the river comes from a Proto-Indo-European root *nr primarily associated with water (compare with Narvamarker, Neretvamarker, Nerismarker, Ner and Nur).

History

On August 23, 1939, the Soviet Union and Germany signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, agreeing to divide Poland along the Narew, Vistula (Wisła), and San rivers.

On September 6, 1939, Polish military forces attempted to use the Narew as a defense line against German attack during the German Invasion of Poland. This was abandoned the next day in favor of the Bug as German forces had already penetrated the defenses.

On September 17, 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Poland. By 28 September, the Soviet Army had reached the line of the rivers Narew, Western Bug, Vistula and San - completing the division of Poland as negotiated in advance.
