What to Expect

We will show you how to make this delicious food - rose jam, tell you about the local lifestyle and centuries-old Bulgarian customs and traditions preserved by the locals, you will learn about the history of producing the valuable rose oil. In addition, a demonstration of the production of another symbolic product for Bulgaria - yoghurt, an original Bulgarian food, to which many centenarians owe their longevity, awaits you. The benefit of moderate but regular use of this millennium product has long been proven. The unique ingredient Lactobacillus bulgaricus balances biochemical processes in the body, strengthens the immune system, provides health and beauty. After a tasting of yogurt, we will try a jam of figs and a homemade banitsa. The period during which it is possible to touch all of these amazing things is limited from mid-May to mid-June - the time of the blossoming of the legendary rose.

I was there 2 weeks ago and booked this tour as a hands-on experience on rose jam making and authentic yoghurt in a Bulgarian house. I'm very delighted to understand part of the Bulgarian culture. Thanks a lot to the guide and the whole organization!
