VIDEO: Bulgaria- The Land of Roses
On May 30th and 31st this year, a young group of volunteers from Sofia Free Tour, welcomed all guests arriving on Terminal 2 at Sofia Airport, with Bulgarian roses from the Rose valley.
What makes this gesture even more special is that this specific kind of rose (Rosa Damascena) is one of Bulgaria’s many natural treasures.
Currently 1kg of its rose oil is sold at a price very close to that of gold! Instead of collecting every drop of it, we welcomed our guests with it, as a sign our appreciation that they are with us. This is just one more reason of why I love Bulgaria!
