Guest house Triglav and roses is situated at the pretty Balkan village of Tazha, Municipality of PavelBanya, StaraZagor a region, only 2km off the road Sofia - Bourgas and 9km east from Kalofer.

We have named it like that, because the village is situated at the foot of mount Triglav, Central StaraPlanina, at the centre of the Rose Valley and one of the legends for the Bulgarian oil-bearing rose is about the village of Tazha.

According to this story, the oil-bearing rose had been brought initially in the area of Tazha village from a Turkish florist. In Asia Minor he used to grow carnations, roses and other aroma flowers. He brought the carnation to the valley of Tundja. The received oil from the carnations was less than he had expected, compared to the one from Asia Minor, but to his surprise, the rose bushes had more flowers here and the water was full with aroma. Even nowadays, the land where the first carnations were planted holds the name "Karamfilbahcha" or the Carnations' garden.

From the fields of Tazha, the oil-bearing rose has spread east into the valley of Kazanlak and west into the fields of Karlovo and nowadays spreads the glory of the Bulgarian oil-bearing rose in the whole world.

The unique nature of the region makes it a preferable touristic destination for village and eco-tourism.
