Bregovo


Bregovo

Bregovo ( _bg. Брегово) is a town in the very northwest of Bulgaria, situated on the east bank of the Timok River close to its mouth. It is located in Vidin Province and is close to the city of Vidin near the national border crossings with Serbia and Romania.

The name of the town was first attested in writing in 1560 in an Ottoman register. It is derived from "breg", meaning "shore" (in this case, the Timok shore), while "-ovo" is a common Slavic suffix indicating a placename. A secular school was built in 1864, a post office followed in 1879, and a custom house emerged in Bregovo in 1895. A community centre ("chitalishte") was in its turn opened on 26 December 1897.
