Overview

The Museum of Roses was founded in 1984 with the help of the city's Museum of History. The exposition includes original photographs, documents and interesting items related to the rose production - the oldest Bulgarian industry. There is a display of tools used to cultivate the rose gardens, along with vessels used to store and transport rose oil. In the yard one can find authentic installations for producing rose oil from both the 19th and the 20th century.

The circular building set in a nice park must be nice in the summer with roses growing the garden in the middle. But the display was very scanty and need be improved. The shop has a variety of rose based products but some of these...More

A nice attempt to build a museum, but with a poor content. Unfortunately, the service from the lady who sells the ticket was quite disrespectful. We had to wait 15mins for her to finish her chit-chat before she decided to sell us tickets.

If you're super into the history behind the rose making then by all means visit the museum. The entrance was too expensive in my opinion (15 leva) for the amount of info and exhibits. I learned more at the actual rose festival. Also you can't...More
