There are 68 enterprises on the territory of the Razgrad municipality. For almost half a century Razgrad has been able to prove and protect its name as the leader in the Bulgarian pharmaceutical, china and porcelain-making industry. The "Antibiotic" AD and "Diamond" joint stock companies are best known and recognized producers of pharmaceuticals for human and veterinary medicine, pane and figured glass, fine household china, having good positions on the world market.

The region of Razgrad possesses a great archeological potential. Scattered around the area are places like the ancient roman town of Abritus, ethnographic complexes in Razgrad and the villages of Pobit Kamak and Topchi, as well as the worldwide famous Sveshtary Thracian Tomb.

In 1982, while excavating near the village of Sveshtari is discovered the unique three-chamber king's tomb from the end of IV century B.C. Its architecture, the preserved multicolored decoration and the frieze with the ten female figures (called caryatids) present it as a sample of the Thracian building art.

The Ethnographic Complex in the village of Pobit Kamak is situated on an area of 0.4 ha and includes three restored Renaissance houses. They represent a typical Bulgarian mountain home of that time. There are displays in each house that represent old crafts. All exhibits have been donated by local inhabitants. Important part of the complex is a restored wind mill.
