Sightseeing Tours Nature & Adventure Day Trips Day Trips From Day Trips To Medium-risk activities

See where the best rose oil in the world is produced on a visit to Bulgaria’s Rose Valley. Discover the Valley of the Thracian Kings on a visit to the Golyama Kosmatka tomb and a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak.


  • Travel through the famous Rose Valley while enjoying views of rose fields and mountain ranges
  • Explore the impressive Golyama Kosmatka Thracian tomb from the 5th century B. C.
  • See the unique frescoes at the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site


Your first stop on this full-day tour is the small but charming Rose Museum in Kazanlak, featuring exhibits related to rose harvesting and rose oil production in Bulgaria. This is the only museum devoted to rose oil production in the whole world. Next you visit the local historical museum, dedicated to the rich cultural heritage of the Kazanlak region, including the tombs from the Valley of the Thracian rulers. Still in Kazanlak, explore the replica of the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, impressive for its unique frescoes dating from the 4th century B.C. The exceptionally well-preserved murals and the condition of the original structure reveal the high level of culture and pictorial art in Hellenistic Thrace. Enjoy lunch in a traditional restaurant in Kazanlak where you'll taste some local dishes and wine.  Continue to the Golyama Kosmatka Thracian tomb, one of the largest mounds ever found on the Balkan Peninsula, dating from the end of the 5th century BC. Archaeologists believe they have found the tomb of the greatest Thracian king, Seuth III. The final stop on the tour is Shipka Memorial Church which is an outstanding Russian Orthodox temple built between 1885 and 1902 in Shipka town at the foothills of the Balkan Range. The Shipka Monument complex is dedicated to the Russian, Ukrainian, and Bulgarian soldiers who died for the liberation of Bulgaria in the Russo-Turkish War from 1877-78.
