Blagoevgrad is the largest city in Southwestern Bulgaria and it is a regional centre. It has a key location along the valley of the Struma river between the mountains of Rila and Vlahina, so the Pan-European Transport Corridor 4 passes through it, a part of which is the European route E79, leading to Greece and Macedonia. The territory of Blagoevgrad has been inhabited since antiquity, as evidenced by the many remains of fortresses, settlements and tombs found here. In the 3rd century there was a Thracian settlement called Skaptopara at the place of Blagoevgrad.

By the 16th century the settlement was a small village with a market, called Dzhuma Bazaars, and later Upper Dzhumaya. A whole quarter is preserved in Blagoevgrad from the time of the Revival, called Varosha. Here some beautifully restored houses may be seen, such as the Dinev House, Moshtanskata House, Unchevata House, Izmirliev House and the house of Georgi Stoilov, declared architectural monuments of culture. The small cobbled streets of Varosha, the picturesque courtyards and whitewashed houses create a truly unique atmosphere and this is one of the city's business cards.
