Hotels in Kazanlak, guest houses and family hotels in the Valley of the Thracian Kings and the Rose Valley.
Kazanlak is the very heart of the Rose Valley, located between Stara Planina and Sredna Gora. The most typical feature of the area is the production of rose oil, which is widely used in perfumery, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The proper temperature, humidity and sandy soil conditions were favorable for the cultivation of oil rose, which was brought from India to our lands. Besides the Rose Valley, the area around Kazanlak is also called the Valley of the Thracian Kings because the most unique and globally significant Thracian mound tombs are found in the region. The first major discovery is the Thracian tomb of Kazanlak where the son of the Thracian king Seuthes III - Roigos was buried and the paintings inside show information about the life and traditions of the Thracians. It is the first Bulgarian monument, which is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Another discovery made by Professor Georgi Kitov is the temple in the Golyama Kosmatka Mound, where they found evidence that Seuthes III was buried there. He was the ruler of the Odrysian kingdom. There are about 1500 registered Thracian burial mounds in the valley, as only about 150 of them have been explored and excavated. The Koprinka Dam is close to Kazanlak and there, at its bottom, lies the ancient Sevtopolis - capital of the Odrysian Kingdom. These and other discoveries and historical monuments make Kazanlak an attractive place for Bulgarian and foreign tourists. The world's only Rose Museum is situated here. The visitors can observe the process of extracting rose oil; see the first laboratory for quality control, tools and more. Almost 100 000 exhibits from the Kazanlak region are preserved in the Iskra Historical Museum.
