In this tour, you can not only personally get to know the flower of the gods - the oil-bearing Kazanlak Rose, which is grown only in these latitudes, but also take part in the ancient ritual on picking roses with the local rose-pickers dressed in folk traditional costumes, with the tasting rose sweet, gulovitsa and rose liqueur. And then you will visit an old house where you will learn to brew the rose oil and extract the rose water.
