It lies approximately 14 kilometres (9 mi) north of Lubin and 69 km (43 mi) north-west of the regional capital Wrocław.
The village was originally called Nowa Ruda (New Rudna) - Old Polish ruda meaning ore - to distinguish it from the neighbouring small village of Stara Rudna (Old Rudna). Originated about 1280, it was not mentioned before 1347 in a deed of Charles IV of Luxemburg, at this time King of Bohemia, as a town within the Duchy of Ścinawa (Steinau).
