Its name during the Ottoman period was Kouliaklis. Its population was made up of Bulgarians, Turks and Greeks. After a brief period of Bulgarian rule between 1913 and 1919, it became part of Greece. As a result its Bulgarian and Turkish population was exchanged with Greek refugees, mainly from today's Turkey.
