Provadia is a town with a history of more than 15 centuries. Archeological discoveries date back from the V century B.C.

It is thought that the town was established as a fortress and fore post of Byzantium against the tribe invasions from North. The Byzantines called it Provat (passage, gorge).At the end of the XI century the Bulgarians call it Ovech, probably because of the well developed sheep breeding.

During the first Bulgarian Kingdom the fortress is not used widely but 15 km north-west from here a monastery complex associated with the rulers was flourishing.

During the second Bulgarian kingdom the town is a military fortress, administrative and economical center.

In 1388 after a long siege Ovech is conquered by the turks. They call it Provadia and later on Tash Hisar.

At the mid XVI the fortress decays and the town permanently resides along the banks of Provadiiska River.

After the liberation from the Ottoman rule the town remains with 3500 residents. After reforms in 1881 it becomes a municipality center.
