The name Babaeski is believed to have originated according to the below story:

The Ottoman Sultan, Mehmet the Conqueror, stopped in town on his way to İstanbul for the conquest. He happened to meet an old man in front of the old mosque which is nowadays called as Small Mosque (Küçük Cami) and asked him when the town was established. The man replied
"Eskidir, eski..." meaning "It is old, old...". When the Sultan asked the man"s age, he replied also "Baba... eski" which means "the father is old...". From then on, the name Babaeski has been used.

Babaeski lies on a relatively flat landscape where the highest point does not exceed 150 m. The "Şeytan" stream (Şeytan Deresi) flows through the land of the district. Agriculture is the main industry. Sunflower, wheat are the main crops grown along with some vegetables. Industrial development has sped up in the last decade mainly in the form of textile factories.

Babaeski hosts the annual "Babaeski Agricultural Festival" in late July to early August where national singers perform.
