The village of Debovo is located 34 km northeast of Pleven and 20 km south of Nikopol. According to old people, the village of Debovo was founded in 1858. At that time, Tatars from the Crimea, Russia were forced by the Russian government to accept Christianity or leave the country. Many Crimean Tatars left Russia and took refuge in Bulgaria. Some of these Tatars, who came from the Crimean village of Debul, settled in these lands. They founded the village of Debu, which later received the name Debovo. In 1870 Bulgarians and Vlachs from the neighbouring villages settled in the village.
