During the Mongol invasion the town was destroyed and its inhabitants fled to the nearby swamps, but they returned and rebuilt their town soon. In the 14th century, during the reign of Louis the Great, Szeged became the most important town of Southern Hungary, and – as the Turkish armies got closer to Hungary –, the strategic importance of Szeged grew.

Szeged was first pillaged by the Turkish army on 28 September 1526, but was occupied only in 1543, and became an administrative center of the Ottomans (see Ottoman Hungary).

During the next years Szeged grew and prospered. Piarist monks arrived to Szeged in 1719 and opened a new grammar school in 1721. They also held scientific lectures and theatre plays.
