Karlovo and Kazanlak are the center of rose-oil extraction in Bulgaria and the oil-producing rose is one of the most widely recognizable national symbols. Bulgaria is the major supplier of rose oil in the world for the cosmetic industry and Kazanlak's/Karlovo's rose gardens are the largest rose gardens in the whole world. Bulgaria is one of the very few places in the entire world that can grow this particular rose (Rosa Damascena or Rose from Damascus).Based on our long-term experience, we came to the conclusion that the festival organised by the local authorities can be very touristy and sometimes not quite well organised. In 2019 we are planning a different approach with a visit of a real rose-distillery starting from their own rose and lavender fields. We hope that our own arrangement, combined of course with the local municipality activities, would bring a much better experience for our guests.
