On 12 at 05:2022 p.m., the most colorful, fragrant and interesting exhibition was opened in the National History Museum. It is dedicated to rose production in Bulgaria and traces the path of Bulgarian rose oil from its first drops to the conquest of world markets in the 13th century.

The exhibition "La Belle Rose. The mystical power of the small flower" is the result of the collaboration between NIM, the Rose Museum and Iskra Historical Museum in Kazanlak. The exhibition traces the path of Bulgarian rose oil from its first drops to the conquest of world markets in the XNUMXth century.

An interesting highlight of the exhibition is a reconstruction of the wooden stand of one of the pioneers in rose production - Kuncho Shipkov from Kazanlak, with which he presented his products at the exhibition in Chicago in 1893 - the exhibition that Aleko Konstantinov wrote about.

Visitors have the opportunity to touch real rose oil and learn about the connection between the distillation of rose oil and the brewing of brandy. They will see with their own eyes a two-hundred-year-old vessel for storing rose oil, the contents of which would be worth 700 euros these days.

"The National History Museum has come to life in the last few years and continues to attract interest with valuable expositions that represent the pride of the Bulgarian land. The joint projects with the regional museums in the country are also wonderful," said Vice President Yotova in her welcome. Mrs. Yotova added that rose production should be declared a strategic production and should benefit from the strong support of the state in order to restore the rightful place of Bulgarian rose oil on the world stage.
