Sopot and Karlovo are situated in Central Bulgaria, near the hillside of the Balkan mountain, about 120km far from Sofia. This area is very famous with the cultivating of roses, used for the production of rose oil. Those towns had an important role during the Bulgarian revival and many important revolutionaries were born there. By choosing this trip you will receive the chance to visit the home of one of the most famous figures in the Bulgarian history – Vasil Levski, whose house in Karlovo is now a museum with national importance. Vasil Levski is a symbol of the will for freedom of the Bulgarian nation and the desire for independence from the Ottoman empire. His activities were important for the creation of internal national liberation movement. The 19th century is a turning point for Europe and the Balkans and people like Vasil Levski were the bearers of the new ideas. Another museum that could be seen in Karlovo is the History museum, where you can get additional information for the past of the town and you can see an example of the device, that was used for making rose oil.
Sopot is another interesting town, where one of the most famous Bulgarian poets and writers were born. Sopot is the hometown of Ivan Vazov, whose publications gained success not only in the Bulgarian lands, but also in many other countries. His works are a good reflection of the spirit of the 19th century and by visiting the town and the museum of Ivan Vazov you can get a piece of that spirit.
