Ruins of an ancient fortress near Hadzhidimovo
|Elevation||485 m (1,591 ft)|
Although the town is located in a Mediterranean climate region, temperatures quite often fall below 0° in winter, and the summers are hot with temperatures sometimes reaching 45° Celsius.
Hadzhidimovo was formed through the merger of the villages of Gorna Singartia and Dolna Singartia. Throughout the 19th century, researchers listed the two villages as having a predominantly ethnic Bulgarian population with a Turkish minority. It was known as Hacıdimova while it was part of Turkey.
For a while after the merger, the settlement was known as Zhostovo, after Bulgarian general Konstantin Zhostov who was born in nearby Gaytaninovo. Today, it bears the name of leftist Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO) revolutionary Dimo Hadzhidimov since 1951. Hadzhidimovo was proclaimed a town in 1996.
