The village was established during the Ottoman Domination in Bulgaria. Back then the road from Dobrudja to Istanbul passed through the area and was frequently used by convoys carrying precious goods to the capital of the Empire. The merchants have been regularly robbed by bandits and the Turkish authorities have decided to put guards there to scare off the robbers. Gradually, a settlement was formed there which set the beginning of the nowadays Iskar village.
Iskar is a quiet and peaceful village, surrounded by picturesque nature. On its territory there is a community center with a library, a food-shop, an Orthodox church. Regular public transportation is available to the town of Valchi Dol and the nearby villages. Electricity and water-supply are provided.
