Enjoy the Rose Festival in Kazanlak, Bulgaria

See also

Among various flower festivals in the world, Kazanlak Rose Festival is getting more and more famous especially in Europe, Asia and Japan. Long time ago when internet was not yet introduced, this festival was not so well known to other countries (than Bulgaria) and only limited number of people knew about the Rose Festival in Kazanlak.

After internet became popular all over the world, Kazanlak Rose Festival has been getting more and more popular seemingly because limited number of people (who were familiar with this particular festival) shared the information with other people through Internet. Consequently even people living quite far from Bulgaria such as Japanese and Asian people became to know about this festival.

The oil produced from roses is quite famous. The high quality of rose oil produced in Bulgaria is widely used not only in Bulgaria but also in many countries. According to Wikipedia, about 85% of the world’s rose oil is produced in Bulgaria. Especially the valley located south of Balkan Mountains and the eastern part of the lower Sredna Gora is quite famous for the rose oil producing industry. The center of the rose oil industry is the city of Kazanlak where the festival is held every year to celebrate roses and rose oil..

The season of picking roses lasts from May to June. During this period of time, people living in this valley can enjoy a pleasant scent and also multi-colored beautiful flowers. Those who engage in gathering roses have been traditionally women who carefully cut the flowers one by one and lay them in willow baskets that are sent to the distilleries.

The Kazanlak rose festival is held in this season. The highlights of the festival is the parade and election of the Rose Queen. Some tourism companies arrange a tour for visiting Kazanlak Rose Festival. Japanese people who are interested in roses and Rose Festival participate in the tour to enjoy this particular event.
