The Rose Valley 
Specialists presume, that the cool nights at end of May and beginning of June, the bright, scorching sun during day time, the high humidity during the rose-picking season, as well as the characteristics of the soil itself - they all perhaps are the reason for the appearance and magical existence of the Bulgarian phenomenon Roza Damacena Mili in the gorgeous Rose Valley. For more than 330 years that fragrant flower,
originating from the ancient Persian lands, occupies the valley between the Balkan range and the Sredna gora mountain, and determinates for ever this place as the best one in the world for growing of the oil-producing roses. At present, 75% from the world rose-oil export for the perfume industry is coming from Bulgaria. The Kazanlak valley is also known as the Valley of the Thracian kings. There are about 1800 tumuli in the region, dating back to end of 5th c. B.C. Joining this tour you will get acquainted with all rituals related to the rose-picking and rose-production of the famous Bulgarian rose oil, 1 gram of which you will take and bring back to your country.
