Septemvri ( _bg. Септември, lit."September") is a Bulgarian town located at the western end of the Upper Thracian Lowland, 19km to the west of the town of Pazardzhik.


Four Thracian mounds and traces of two ancient settlement - emporion Pistiros and an Roman town that lays on "Trayan's Drum" were discovered near the town. It has succeeded as an old Bulgarian settlement, which was destroyed in the late 14th century during the Ottoman onslaught. The town was rebuilt in the end of the 15th century under the Turkish name of "Sara Khan bey", and carried this name until 1949.

Septemvri developed into a typical railway town following the construction of the Haskovo-Belovo railway line in 1873 and later, a narrow-gauge line to the Rhodopi mountain town of Dobrinishte in 1945.
