In the 13C the town became deserted after the attacks of the Tatar troops. Szolnok recovered quickly and in the 15C it was already a town with some privileges. It became an important trade center due to the road which went through the town. This commercial route was the traditional way to transport salt from Transylvania to Buda.


During Turkish times it became part of the Ottoman Empire although it had been strengthen before the attacks. After the expulsion of the Turks the town started to develop again. In the 19C the railway was laid down. Most of its inhabitants were working in agriculture or food industry.


In the 20C, during the communist era the industrial life of Szolnok was extremely developed. Many people migrated to the town in hope to work in the factories. New block-houses were built for the new settlers.
