Kazanluk (or Kazanlak) is situated in the centre of Bulgaria, near to the mountain Stara planina (Balkan). Its population is about 50 000. In the last decades the town has developed its own industry (textile manifactures). There are many thracian tombs around the town, in so called by historians Valley of the thracian kings. To the north of Kazanluk in the foot of mountain is situated a little town- Shipka. There is Shipka monastery, devoted to the fallen warriors of the Russian-Turkish war 1877 - 1878.
The Shipka monastery was built in 1903 in Russian style. On the peak Shipka there is The Monument of freedom, built in 1934.
I reccomend to the visitors of my town the following:
1. If you are alone- stay in touch with some travel agency! Otherwise it will be difficult to get to the thracian tombs.
2. If you don't have time, you must visit the following objects: The Museum (treasures of the thracians; the gallery with famous Bulgarian art works); The thracian tomb (15 min walk from the Museum); Shipka monastery (20-25 min by car); The tomb of Sevt (2 min by car, on the way back to Kazanluk).
3. If you have more time, you must visit the Shipka monument (50 min by car from Kazanluk, 25 from Shipka town).
4. It is worth visiting Kazanluk in the first weekend of June for the Festival of roses!
- Pros:Peacefulness, lovely landscapes
- Cons:not so many cultural and sport events
- In a nutshell:Calmness and safety.
The museum where you can find some thracian treasures and you can see paintings of famous bulgarian artists. more travel advice
