The land of Roses
Discover the traditional process of rose picking in Bulgaria.
See the famous Bulgarian Kazanluk roses - special type of roses, which are inheritors of the so called Damascena rose, that was brought in the country ages ago.
The rose oil is called "the liquid gold" of Bulgaria because it is 3 times more expensive than the real gold. One gram of rose oil is extracted from more than 1300 rose blossoms! Every flower is picked by hands and preserved carefully for the distillation. Be part of this rose picking process!
