Razlog , Bulgaria

The natural conditions in the valley situated between Rila, Pirin and Rodopi mountains, determine its settlement in ancient times. The old Thracian name of Razlog is Mehomia. According to the legend in the past at this place a Thracian war leader won a vicotry over his enemy and that is why he called this settlement "Meo Mia", which translated from Thracian means "my victory". In 1925 the town was renamed Razlog.
