In the late 14th-early 15th centuries sultan Turkey firmed its might. It was at that time that the process of subjugatin of Moldavian Principality by Osmanli Turks started. In 1538 after a number of fierce battles in Budzhak steppes Turks captured Tigina and 18 neighbouring villages. Advantageous strategic location on amounted bank of the Dniester near its confluence with the Black Sea made the town one of the Turkish strongholds in the fight against Russia. At the place of a former customs at the ford a fortress began to be constructed by a Abdul Minan. The town and the fortress were renamed Bendery (Persian-harbour, port).
