history

The oldest known name of Beloslav was Krushevo. The settlement was also named Gebedje, Belovo, Belevo. Krushevo village was burned down and depopulated by the Turks in the beginning of the 19th century.
In the middle of the 19th century two brothers named Sava and Yanaki passed by the deserted village of Krushevo on their way home. Facinated by the lake, the dense forests and the fertile soil they have decided to settle there. They built their houses in the upper, southern of the valley and named the new settlement Gebedje. No one knows for certain the meaning of the name but one of the suggestions is that it means "a pregnant woman"  since the hills surrounding the village resembled a lying pregnant woman.
In 1945 a lady name d Dimitra Voykova established the first feminine society in Beloslav. Its members were very active - they made a maternity hospital which later on became a hospital where midwives were trained.
