History

This land is rich in archeological finds. There are plenty of tumuli around the town, which you can see even nowadays. These are protected places, former graves from the copper ages.


The settlements of the early Middle Ages were destroyed by the Tatar troops in the 13C. After, Cumanian people settled here. The first source which mentioned the name of Karcag dates back to the 16C. During the 17-18C it became deserted time after time. From that time, it developed quickly. When some surrounding settlements united with Karcag, it became the center of this region. Although it was an agricultural center, more and more craftsmen settled here. Industrial develops were made in the 19C, when the railway was laid down and new mills were built.


Although the town suffered a lot during the wars of the 20C, it still is the economical and cultural center of this region.
