Dobrich is an ancient settlement and modern city in Southern Dobrudzha, located 30 km from the Black Sea and 51 km from Varna. The archaeological discoveries, made in the region, indicate the presence of an ancient settlement, and in the Middle Ages an unprotected Old Bulgarian village was located here. The old name of Dobrich is Hadzhioglu Pazardzhik and the city was founded in the 16th century by a wealthy merchant named Hadzhioglu. In 1882, at the request of the citizens it was renamed after the name of the Bulgarian ruler Dobrotitsa who ruled Dobrudzha Despotism in the 14th century. Dobrich is the birthplace of the 'master of the short story' and one of the classics of the Bulgarian literature - Yordan Yovkov. His native house is a part of the exposition of the History Museum where there are 163,000 exhibits, divided into sections of Archaeology, Urban and Rural Life 19-20 century, icons, the house museum of Adriana Budevska and so on. The traditional Dobrudzha crafts, customs and culture are presented in the open architectural and ethnographic museum of Old Dobrich. There is a café and boza shop on its territory, too. The guests are introduced to the production process in the different workshops and craft shops. The church of St. George, built in 1843, may be seen in the city as well.
