It is the administrative centre of Valchi Dol Municipality, which lies in the northwestern part of the Province. In December 2009 the town had 3,460 inhabitants.[1]

Valchi Dol is located at the watershed of the Dobruja, Varna and Shumen plateaux. Its name means "wolf's ravine" in Bulgarian, which is also reflected in its old Ottoman Turkish name, Kurtdere.
