Rose Festival is one of the most remarkable events in Bulgaria. It’s dedicated to the beauty of the famous Kazanlak roses. The festival was first celebrated in 1903, and this year is the celebration of the 114 years since then. There are three events during the festival you must visit: the election of Queen Rose, the parade along the streets of the town, and the early morning ritual in the rose fields.
