The official Serbian name is Dimitrovgrad (Димитровград), but the name Caribrod (Цариброд) is also used in Serbian. In Bulgarian, the name Tsaribrod (Цариброд) is preferred because there is another town called Dimitrovgrad on the river of Maritsa in Bulgaria; it can sometimes be transliterated as Caribrod or Tzaribrod.
