RAZLOG

Razlog is situated on the plain of the same name, surrounded on three sides by the RilaPirin and Rhodope mountains. It is nestled between two small hills - Golak, on the north, and Sarovitsa to the south. The Mesta River flows by the town.

The first settlers in these parts were the Thracian tribes Satrae and Dii; later came Celts and Slavs, who gave the town its name - separator between two mountains. In 847, during the time of Khan Presian, Razlog was annexed to the Bulgarian state, and in 1382 was captured by the Ottoman Turks. Under the Treaty of Berlin it remained under Ottoman rule even after the Liberation of Bulgaria in 1878. Years
passed in the population's battle for national and church freedom. The town was one of the centres of the tumultuous events during the time of the Kresna-Razlog Uprising (1878) and the Ilinden-Preobrazhenie (St. Elijah's Day-Transfiguration) Uprising (1903) in the Pirin region. It was known as Mehomia until 1925.
