The village is divided into two parts - the "old part" and the "new part".

The former name of the village used to be Indzhe-kyoy. The village was founded in the XIX century from both Aegean and Odrin Thracia settlers chased away from their home areas by the Turkish authorities. Still, evidence have been revealed that these lands have been inhabited since the time of the Thracians. A great number of ceramic utensils and household articles were revealed during excavation works on the nearby Klise Bair hill. Yet, objects of Greek origin have been revealed, as well, which proves the presence of both economic and social contacts with the Greek colonizers. A Thracian tumulus has been revealed on the territory of the village, too. Another rare finding is the ceramic dated back to the period of the First Bulgarian State. It is very rare and is of great interest for both historians ad archaeologists.
