Haskovo Cove is on Greenwich Island in Antarctica. It is named after the city of Haskovo, which is on Greenwich Island.
Many[who?] think that the name came from the Arabic word "has." There are some who say it comes from the Turkish word "has." This word has roots in the word "clean," they say. By 1782, the name of the town was Marsa, and it was called that until then. Since then, it has been called "Haskoy." The Bulgarian (and other Slavic) suffix "-ovo" was used instead of the Turkish "koy" when the city was taken over by Bulgarians from the Ottomans.
