HISTORY

Two Thracian tribes dii and satri - were the first to settle in the area of present-day Razlog. In 847, Razlog was included in the territory of Bulgaria during the rule of Khan Pressian. Thereafter, the town shared the fate of other Bulgarian lands with the major exception being its non-inclusion in the liberated territories following the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878. Razlog was eventually liberated following desperate uprisings by its citizens and the population of neighbouring areas - namely the Kresna-Razlog (1878) and the Ilinden-Preobrazhenie (1903) uprisings of the Pirin region.

The location of the town turns it into a very comfortable starting position for mountain tracks in Rila and Pirin.

In short Razlog can be described as a small but very alive town. The local people are working hard for it to look beautiful and cosy. The local people have preserved their traditional customs and are regularly performing them. One of the most important celebrations for Razlog is New Year eve and the welcoming of the new year.
