The first written record about Nová Vieska dates back to 1233 and since that time the village has gone through many changes. The village dwellers experienced the most cruel times being under the sovereignty of Turks. The village gained freedom in 1700.
Today Nová Vieska is nice and well-organized agricultural and vineyard village comprising settlements of Arad and Réva. Great experience for everybody will be a walk through the vineyards on the slopes offering a beautiful view at Dunaj or a visit of stone wine-cellars from 19th and 20th century, but above all tasting of fine vine of Nová Vieska. People maintain the tradion of Vintage festival up to the present day. Just like the old days: in september, when stum is turning into young wine, a ceremonial procession passes the village accompanied by music, singing and dancing. There are three folklore groups in the village which together with folklore groups from other villages and from Hungary as well participate in Village Festival and perform in the local amphitheatre. People are attracted by local specialities, too- great kettle goulash, tasty wedding cake baked in this village only and wine that has already become golden potion.
