Somewhere between the Balkans and the Sredna Gora mountain ranges in Central Bulgaria lies what is known as the Valley of Roses. The picturesque valley is surrounded by a number of old-fashioned towns where people have been planting, picking and processing roses for over 300 years. There is something about the climate of the area that creates the optimal conditions for what is considered to be some of the best rose essential oil in the world.
