History

The first source which mentioned the name of Szolnok dates back to the 11C. It got its name after its first bailiff. During the early middle ages it was an administrative center.


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.


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.
