Rose Festival In Karlovo

Bulgaria is one of the biggest producers of rose oil in the world. The Rose is the Symbol of Bulgaria. The Bulgarian roses are inheritors of the so called Damascena rose and was brought to our lands during the 17the century. The Rose valley of Bulgaria includes Karlovo and Kazanlak fields with area is about 3,300 square kilometers - extending more than 130 km along the Stara Planina mountain, surrounded by two mountains, which help create a specific climate.

This festival was held for first time in 1903 from the citizens of Kazanlak and was dedicated to the beauty and charity. The rose cultivation and rose industry have been kept by generations of enterprising people from the valley. Every year, during the first weekend of June, local community organizes the annual Festival of Roses.
