The village of Asenovo is located 24 km from Nikopol and 28 km from Pleven. It is named after the Bulgarian king Assen. It was inhabited in 1892 by descendants of the famous Chiprovtsi people who fled after the uprising in 1688. They lived for more than 200 years in Austria-Hungary, Banat and Vinga (Romania). They returned after the Liberation of Bulgaria. Looking for a place to settle after receiving the decree of 1888-1891, they first settled in the area called by Vingantsi "Deep Geran" farm near Pleven. They did not find water and asked permission to look elsewhere, finding a beautiful area surrounded by heights, tucked between bushes and trees - today's Asenovo.
