Suraż, which has a long and rich history, and was a royal town in the Kingdom of Poland, currently is one of the smallest municipalities of the country, with a population of only 1012 as of June 30, 2012

The history of Suraż dates back to the 11th century, when a defensive gord was established on the right bank of the Narew river In 1390, King Władysław II Jagiełło handed Suraż, together with other towns in the area, to Mazovian Duke Janusz I of Warsaw The Suraź Castle is mentioned in a 1392 Teutonic Knights chronicle, when it was destroyed by forces of Grand Master Engelhard Rabe Some time in the late 15th century, a new castle was built, with a brick tower, and a prison The castle was destroyed during the Swedish invasion of Poland 1655-1660

Suraż received Magdeburg rights on September 16, 1445, from King Casimir IV In 1520, it became seat of a powiat in the Land of Bielsk Podlaski, and in 1569, following the Union of Lublin, Suraż was annexed by the Kingdom of Poland: until the Partitions of Poland, it was part of Podlaskie Voivodeship 1513–1795 The town was inhabited by three communities - Polish, Jewish and Ruthenian

Since 1795, Suraź belonged to the Russian Empire Its area was one of centres of the 1863 January Uprising: here a clash between rebels and Russians took place in May 1863 After the rebellion, the Russians imposed heavy taxes on its residents, and the population of the town rapidly declined Furthermore, construction of the Saint Petersburg – Warsaw Railway 1862 bypassed Suraż, which deepened its decline
