Rose Festival 2014

Rose Festival

3rd June 2014, Kazanlak, Valley of the Roses

Bulgaria is one of the biggest producers in the world of high quality rose oil. Every year thousands of tourists witness the country’s most famous festival celebrating the harvest of this valuable crop. A visit to the Valley of the Roses during this brief harvest period, usually at the beginning of June, must be experienced at least once! The scent that lingers in the morning air as the precious petals are harvested is heavenly. (The petals must be gathered and brought to the distillery before sunrise to preserve the natural qualities of the rose)

Tourist agencies offer programs to encompass all the elements of these festivities; the gathering of the rose petals, the crowning of the rose queen and the carnival procession at the end. Visit to distilleries as well as a variety of other traditional events are usually included in the program.
