Kazanlak lies in the centre of Rose Valley, a major agricultural area with rose fields, product of which is then extracted to produce rose oil.
Buzludja monument(yeah the UFO) is just 25km. north from Kazanlak. Also there are good cikling trecks in the mountain. In the valley are lokated some interesting ancient monuments to Thracian kings. 5km. western direction from Kazanlak is lokated Koprinka dam - good place for all kind of sports(including watter sport and cikling).
Tracian tomb covered from [UNESCO] is lokated in the north direction of Kazanlak. Next to the art school in the Tulbe park.
Come to see the roze festival in the end of May every ear.
There is a large Roma community in the eastern part of the city, in which travellers may feel uncomfortable and non-locals may be unwelcome.
