The fortress played a vital role in the history of Bulgaria. In 11 th century the fortress was conquest by Byzantine, but regained back with the restoration of the Bulgarian State. It was in fact one of the few strongholds to resist the first wave of the Ottoman invasion. Still in 1444 it was raided and burned down by the Crusade armies of Wladyslaw III Warnenczyk.
