Zlatograd is only 3 km (1.8 miles) from the Bulgaria-Greece border, situated along the Varbitza River between the East and West ranges of the Rhodope mountains. Zlato is the Bulgarian word for gold. Although Zlatograd is a very old town, it has borne its name only since 1934. People say the name was given because of the golden colour of the tobacco leaves grown in this part of the Rhodopi.

There are some unique round chimneys on some houses. Such chimneys will be seen no other place in Bulgaria - only in Zlatograd.
