The area of Kazanluk was know for many years as the Valley of Roses.
There is an annual event there - every first week of the June the week of the roses is celebrated - a week full with cultural events.
There are several big painters who were born and/or lived in Kazanluk: Dechko Uzunov, Nenko Balkanski, Chudomir. Their houses are turned to museums and galleries. Some of their works could be seen in the local Gallery of Art too.
One of the Bulgaria's UNESCO site is located here - the Kazanluk tomb.
But in the last years there are many other Thracian tombs found in the area, so the latter is called the Valley of the Thracian Kings. Some of the archeological finds can be seen in the archeological museum in Kazanluk.

I stopped once a guy who I thought was local but surprise... he was German.... Despite the fact he gave me the direction (yeah, not in Bulgarian)
the name of the city may be written using the Latin alphabet in two ways (at least): KazanlUk or KazanlAk
Every year there is a Festival of Roses that takes place in Kazanluk in the first week of June. There are many cultural... more travel advice
