It is one of the oldest settlements of county Pest. It is the first village you can find along road No. 5 coming from Budapest.
It was first mentioned in records by King Béla IV in 1267 under the name "Nywyg", which refers to the verb 'nyűni' meaning to wear out. The village became famous for the animal cemetery findings from the Copper age (the Baden and Sarmatian cemeteries). The findings from the Bronze age were excavated in Kenderföldek and Nagyhegy.
