The Moldovan city of Soroca lies in the northern part of the country, by the river Dniester. Originally a Dacian, and later a Greek colony used to stand here, also known as Olchionia or Alchona. The first mention of the city comes from the 15th century, when the Moldovan prince Stephen the Great built here a defensive fortress in 1499. The fort has been preserved in a good condition until these days. A large Gypsy minority lives in Soroca, that is why it is often called the Gypsy capital of Moldova . The city played a key role during the Russian-Turkish wars when it became an important and successful defence point of the Russians. In the 19th century, Soroca experienced a period of relative prosperity, and during the Soviet era it became an important industrial centre of northern Moldova .
