Interesting Place # 109 - Bulgaria

Almost half the expensive rose oil used in perfumes and cosmetics comes from a single valley in Bulgaria.

(The valley, unimaginatively called Rose Valley (Розова долина, Rozova dolina),is in a region of Bulgaria south of the Balkan Mountains. Roses have been cultivated there for centuries.)


  1. I'm sure that valley must smell good.

    Hello, I have also started a fact a day blog and wanted to see how other people have done it. Your format is very clean. One note, your "interesting fact" brain has two "http://" 's making it a broken link. Some day I hope to have thousands of entries like you. Keep up the good work, I'll definitely be back.

    I'm using a throwaway Google account to comment, but please visit or email me at I'd really like to know your motivation and personal story and/or any tips you have for someone who is starting out. Thanks!

  2. Hi Steve,

    I'm sure it smells wonderful, they grow lavender there too.

    Thanks for letting me know about the link. :)

    Re your blog - Just keep going for thousands of days and you'll get there.

    Good luck.
