It officially became the city of Cahul in December 1835; it got its name in honor of the victory of Russian troops over the Turkish army at the Cahul River in 1770. Until that time, the settlement was called first Shkeya, then Frumoasa (Beautiful), and was first mentioned in the sovereign's letters at the beginning of the 16th century. Cahul is located in an open area with a slight slope to the river. The city is well planned. A small tributary of the Prut, the Frumoasa River, divides it into two unequal parts - northern and southern.
