The Godetch Municipality is located in the northwestern part of the Sofia field, south of the Berkovski part of the Balkan Range with peak Kom (2016m), and north of the Chepan Mountain - the peak of Petrov Krast (1206 m). To the west the territory of the municipality boarders on the Republic of Serbia, to the south - on Dragoman municipality, to the north - on Berkovitsa and Vurshets municipalities and to the east - on Svoge and Kostinbrod municipalities. 51.8% of its territory is farming land and 42.3% is forests. Road No. 281 Kulata - Sofia - Gintsi - Petrohan - Berkovitsa - Montana - Lom /Vidin/ passes through the territory of the municipality and is part of the European corridor No. 4. Twenti five km to the west of the municipal town of Godech is Kalotina border control point.
The land is characterized by a large variety of relief forms. The kettle bottom is well developed (Gladno pole - 685 meters above sea level). It rises gradually on the west and becomes more like a hill. One of the major factors for forming the relief is the Nihsava River, on the ledges of which the town of Godetch is built. The mountainous character of the areas as well as the natural characteristics are suitable for building summer-houses zones around the town and the villages of Gintsi, Varbnitsa, Touden, etc. The forests in the region of Chepen and the bottoms of Kom peak - the villages of Gintsi, Komshtitsa, Gubesh, Smolcha, etc., are suitable for hunting tourism. The Nishava River, the mountain rivers and the water basins near the village of Varbnitsa are suitable for sport fishing.
A number of archeological finds attest to life in the Godetch region during the prehistoric epoch, at the time of the Thracians and the Romans.
