KardzhaliKardzhali is situated in the eastern part of the Rhodope Mountains on both banks of the Arda river. It is about 104 km from Plovdiv and 250 km from Sofia.

Two big and beautiful dam lakes surround the city: Studen Kladenets Dam Lake (the name means Cold Well) and Kardzhali Dam Lake.

Remnants of village life have been discovered which date back to 6000 B.C. Throughout the centuries the city passed through various cultural epics such as Byzantine, Roman, Slav, Bulgarian and Ottoman.

Today it is still one of the Bulgarian cities where the highest percentage of Turkish population lives. Each of these cultures has left certain elements which are present in the contemporary outlook of the city.

The name of the city comes from an Ottoman military leader called Kardzhali Ali. The city celebrates its patron day on October the 21, when it has been integrated in the Bulgarian country.
