Hrodna (Belarusian: Гро́дна; Russian: Гро́дно; Polish: Grodno; Lithuanian: Gardinas, German: Garten) is a city in Belarus. It is located on the Neman River, close to the borders of Poland and Lithuania (about 15 km and 30 km away respectively). It has 317,366 inhabitants (2005 estimate). It is the capital of Hrodna voblast (province) and Hrodna raion (district).

Records indicate it has been in existence for at least 900 years. Not surprisingly given its location, Hrodna has a significant Polish and Lithuanian heritage and lay for a time within these realms historically.
