When the Turks invaded Hungary, it became part of the Ottoman Empire. This land was deserted time after time. After the regularizations of river ways in the 19C the town was no longer under the threat of floods. During this period some develops were made. Because there were no industrial develops, this land has remained agricultural, and Békés could retain its small-townish atmosphere.
