Stara Zagora Region

The Stara Zagora Region covers the Stara Zagora Plain, the Kazanlak Valley, part of Stara Planina and Sredna Gora. The area is rich in water resources – rivers, lakes, karst springs and numerous mineral springs. Kazanlak and the valley surrounding the town are famous for growing roses.
The region was the center of the Thracian culture and many mounds and tombs are located along the Tundzha River in the Kazanlak valley and that it is why it is called the Valley of the Thracian Kings. The Thracian tomb in Kazanlak is the most famous heritage left by the Thracians and it is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are also monuments related to the Liberation of Bulgaria, most of which are located around the peaks of Shipka and Buzludja.
