I have read different reviews about the attraction. Anyway, we decided to visit it. It's interesting and definitely a postcard of Bulgarian ethnography. A lot of money has been spent on it and it may be worth the ticket although when you visit it in...More

This is a very new and well-kept complex and apparently the aim is to inform tourists about rose oil. However, despite the hefty entrance fee (12lv, 6€ per person), hardly any explanation is provided. A guide costs even more money. There are however a couple...More

I visited this place under suggestion of the receptionist and I think that's better visit it during harvesting time. Btw it's a pleasant and relax place where to chill.

In the valley of Roses this complex has been created to show off the way in which the Roses are grown and harvested. The distilling area is quite amazing as are the gardens and waterfalls. The shopping area is very comprehensive and beautifully presented.
