Situated in central Bulgaria, this valley has several major attractions and, consequently, bears many names. Some will know that it is in the middle of the rose attar producing region, hence the Valley of Roses moniker.
Those with an interest in cultural heritage and history will inevitably relate it to its multitude of ancient monuments related to the Thracians, ancient tribes who lived in these lands before the Bulgarian state was founded in the 7th century. The Thracians were skilful goldsmiths who famously drank their wine undiluted. They provide another moniker for the location, Valley of the Thracian Kings.
