The confine-fortress was ordered by Mikó Ferenc advisor of sovereign Bethlen Gábor and it was built between 1623-1631 in neo-renesaince style. The building was ruined during the 1661's Turkish punitive expedition. It was rebuilt by Count Steinwille István imperial general as it is seable today.

The exterior blindage having four bastions was dinished in 1732 the arriers of the fortresses were heightened.

Also in 1732 the banks of the defense dike were raised and only through a bridge could reach the fortress with 16 cannons. In the city there were food stores, the bakery, and the barracks of the armies. Until 1764 it was an imperial barracks, until 1849 the seat of the Scythian infantry regiment, and from 1873 the Hungarian kingdom.

In 1970 the County Museum moved here. Today, the Szekler Museum in Ciuc and the Heritage Protection Office operate. In the garden behind the fortress was built the Village Museum, and in the neighborhood of the fortress there are old music festivals.
