Tourists should definitely visit the numerous craft workshops, weavers, knitters, artists - people who carry the spirit of the traditions of the town. There is an active fulling- mill on Iazo river, just 10 kilometers away from the center of the town.

Razlog resort is a huge transport center. Every day regular bus lines connect the town with Bansko, Blagoevgrad, Sofia, Gotse Delchev, Velingrad and many other villages. The situation of the town turns it into a very comfortable starting position for mountain tracks in Rila and Pirin mountains.

In short Razlog resort can be described as a small but very alive town. Now Razlog ski resort is developing as a contemporary administrative center that comprises the villages of Banya, Gorno Draglishte, Dolno Draglishte, Dobarsko, Bachevo, Godlevo and Eleshnitsa.

The local people have preserved their traditional customs and are regularly performing them. Two of the most significant folklore events in Bulgaria are organized and held in Razlog.
