In 1722, Peter the Great conquered the city through 1734. In the early 20th century Russians again conquered this city. It was badly damaged under occupation during World War I and World War II. The city produces and sells rice, tea, peanuts and silk. Some other manufactured goods are soap, glass, and razor blades.
