Hadzhidimovo (Bulgarian: Хаджидимово) is a small town and a centre of a municipality in Blagoevgrad Province, south-western Bulgaria.

It is located in the southernmost part of Bulgaria, bordering on Greece in the Chech region.

Geography

The municipality lies in the Mesta River valley, surrounded by the heights of Rila, Pirin, Slavyanka, Shilka, Bozdag, and the Western Rhodopes Mountains.

Although the municipality is located in a Mediterranean climate region, temperatures quite often fall below 0º in winter, and the summers are hot with sometimes temperatures reaching 45Celsius.

The municipality includes one town, Hadzhidimovo, and 14 villages.

History

Hadzhidimovo was formed through the merger of the villages of Gorna Singartia and Dolna Singartia. Throughout the 19th century, researchers listed the two villages as having a predominantly ethnic Bulgarian population with a Turkish minority.[1]

For a while after the merger, the settlement was known as Zhostovo, after Bulgarian general Konstantin Zhostov who was born in nearby Gaytaninovo. Today, it bears the name of leftist Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO) revolutionary Dimo Hadzhidimov since 1951. Hadzhidimovo was proclaimed a town in 1996.

Transportation

The municipality is crossed by the II-19 highway from Gotse Delchev, Koprivlen, and Sadovo to the Greek border at Ilinden.
