Stretching from the foot of the Sredna Gora mountain range to the sub-balkan region with the majestic peaks of the Balkan mountain range as a backdrop lies the famous Rose Valley region. The Rose Valley Wine & SPA Trail is inspired by the Thracian heritage found on these lands. Part of the Rose Valley stretches over an area called the Valley of the Kings because of the numerous tombs of Thracian kings discovered.  During the tour you will visit two of the most famous Thracian tombs – the Thracian tomb of Kazanluk and the Thracian tomb of Starosel.
