The 115th rose festival and an international lutherie contest will be held in Kazanlak, Focus News Agency
reports. The municipality expects over 100,000 tourists at the local carnival that will be the culmination of the festival. The events began on May 18 with the selection of the 50th Queen of the Rose and will continue nearly a month. This year the organisers put an emphasis on the 100th anniversary of the lutherie craft in the area of Kazanlak. In this regard, an international lutherie contest for violin, viola, violoncello and guitar will take place in the city as part of its twinning with Italy’s Cremona. Until now, the prestigious contest named after Antonio Stradivari has always been held in Italy. Participants from 11 countries will be competing in Kazanlak.
